Tinsel and Tine has always been a main course of Tinsel and a loving dollop of Tine. Therefore, my restaurant posts often get pushed back a bit, like this one from April.
I went to this incredibly fun Moroccan restaurant with a group of Couch Surfers, the restaurant is called Marrakesh, located just off of South Street (517 Leithgow Street), a 30 year-old business, family owned and operated. The ambiance and size of the establishment is how you'd imagine the tent interior of a wealthy Sheik in the middle of an Oasis.
There was about 35 of us in the group taking up the entire restaurant, split up into groups of 5 or 6 in sections of throw pillows, low tables and mood lighting. No need for menus or ordering, the courses just start coming after our Moroccan Hand washing.
(photo credit: hand washing pitcher is not from the restaurant, but rather from a blog I discovered while looking for an image called The Good Life in Morocco).
At this point in time, I have misplaced my notes on all the incredibly savory courses we enjoyed, of which I believe, there were seven, plus a perfect mint tea finish.
I do remember loving the The B’stella- layered pie with chicken, assorted nuts, almonds, eggs, parsley and onions, topped with confection sugar and traced with cinnamon. - 4 Tines (* Excellent - 4 Tines / * Great - 3 Tines / * Good - 2 Tines / * Fair - 1 Tine / * Poor - Tarnished)
