This unassuming restaurant in Marrakesh is, on the surface, like many other "grills" in Morocco. Customers can select meat of their choice (lamb chops, kefta, brochettes, etc.) at the adjacent butcher and then carry it several meters away to a fired-up grill, where the meat is cooked to order on the spot. Bread, soda, tea and other fare needed to complete the meal can be ordered inside.

Most of Eyyachi's customers don't come for the grill, however – they come for what you can't see in this photo.
