Mechoui - the Tandoori of Morocco

For an experience not to be missed, in Marrakech be sure to try Mechoui, the slow pit roasted lamb.  Tender and succulent, falling off the bone, not even a fork is necessary.  Served with a sprinkling of freshly ground cumin and some sea salt, a simple and satisfying meal. 
Baked in a below ground oven, similiar to a tandoori, you will find it near the main square in Marrakech.
The very traditional take-out meal for those lucky enough to be in Marrakech.
