taxi to El-Muniria
18:39El-Muniria Hotel
With 50 style luxury, old style writing desk, with shower (but no toilet)
Bed is lavish.
Breakfast not included
May have hot water at night... just may
The side street is a bit dark and quite but wide enough and connect quite close to the main busy street
Wifi in room (at least for #3)
19:11Dinner at Number one Restaurant
Seems like another pricy restaurant promoted by Lonely planet
80 for some couscous
35 for soup
and drinks
It is getting very expensive........
But at least it has wide screen TV...

The restaurant is empty except for myself, not a good sign....
Let's hope they can at least cook some food that is clean....
19:56Veggie couscous
Nothing special, yet still charge me 80D
But I have to admit the taste is best I so far experienced in Morocco... Texture is good, heat is just right, aptly seasoned...
but still too expensive....

148D total, no wonder no locals come by

Even though the taste and quality is good, but since the cooking is pretty standard, nothing creative, the pricing seems thrice more expensive than normal, so I will have to give this a solid avoid.
