Just a quick post this time to give a hat tip to Assanfou, a restaurant found on the N9 road from Marrakech that threads through the High Atlas towards the desert. Here we stopped for a magnificent glass of Morocco's ubiquitous mint tea whilst enjoying the view and then wolfed down a tagine of lamb with figs.
Truly fantastic mountain cooking. If you are heading that way then I can heartily recommend a pit stop for lunch here.
The scenery on that road is something else, as well. It has a certain untamed, untameable wildness that is just stunning. Well worth the trip.
