SHOW & TELL - A restaurant in Marrakech
More participants are here at Kelly's
When I was in Marrakech (Morocco) our group was taken to a very famous restaurant called "Dar Essalam". It was an enchanting and fairy place, with an amazing decoration out of 1000 and one night. Unfortunately the flash of my camera didn't work so I had to take the pictures with my spare camera, but it still gives an idea of what we have seen. The food too was delicious.
We were taken through very small stony streets to a very old looking wooden door and we looked at each other thinking, oh my god, where do they take us know ?
But behind this old door was a real palace, mamor and mosaic, oriental carpets and beautiful decorations
My friend Ilona and I were greated by two ladies.
During the meal was a belly dancing show
even with candles on the head
Here we are sitting and waiting for the starter
This restaurant was already used for shooting the movie The man who know too much with James Stewart and Doris Day by Hitchcock in 1956 !
This was the place where Doris Day and James Stewart sat with him together
some of beautiful hand painted plates
I also loved the simplicity of the dishes
This was one of the rooms of the restaurant. It just gives you a little idea of how beautiful it was !
