PLACE JEMAA EL FNA - At the very top of this sprawling 'square' - just before all the souks ramify out like branches of a tree - there are at least a dozen or two stalls selling freshly squeezed orange or grapefruit juice - but - beware of the ice! La Place - the famous town square of Marrakech - is very different by day with the large number of spectacles going on all around: snake charmers, singers, story tellers, healers and by night the food stalls take over the Jemaa as soon as the orange juice sellers have packed up and gone home. The food is prepared on the spot from fresh ingredients - and - you can choose between fish, meat or vegetable dishes - the food is exquisite, tasteful and much appreciated by Moroccans and brave tourists - never forget the good rule of eating in Morocco: eat where the Moroccans eat — they know where to get good food!
