Located in the New Town section of Fez, L’Anmbra is a traditional Moroccan restaurant with typical décor and musicians. Our dinner began with several small Moroccan salads and then pastilla, a much-touted Moroccan dish. Ours included chicken encased in flaky pastry dusted with confectionery sugar and cinnamon. For the main dish, I ate couscous with lamb, vegetables and fruits while Jim had roasted lamb with vegetables and potatoes. Sliced strawberries and oranges sprinkled with cinnamon sugar along with tiny pastries wrapped in sesame seeds and piping hot mint tea concluded our meal.
