Seattle: Marrakesh

Jess and Mike lived near this Moroccan Restaurant called Marrakesh.  From the outside, the restaurant looks borderline gaudy and dodgy.  It had no windows.  In Taiwan, gaudy establishments with no window are usually brothels.  Anyway, I was in the mood of adventure and I was sure I would be pleasantly surprised either way.

Inside, the restaurant was gorgeously designed to look like a Middle Easter Tavern with beautiful rugs on the floors and hanging from the walls.  The tables were only knee high, and most guests sit on the floor.  A beautifully dressed belly dancers jingles from table to table in this dark and ambient room. It was surreal!

The food were well priced (for a Seattle restaurant).  For $18.99, you get a decently portioned 5-course dinner.  There were unlimited soft doughy bread to finish the sauce from each dish. Wine and beer was cheap as well.

Marakesh House Salad
B'stilla Royale: Mysterious chicken stuffing of deliciousness  (Dennis had the vegan version)
Breka Vegetarian: Stuffed phyllo with mousseline potato, chopped green onion, parsley, and cilantro
Tagine of Chicken Honey and Prunes
Tagine of Lamb with Egg Plant
The dessert was quite stingy, but I appreciate that for weight lost reason. I definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone who happened to be in the area.
