My husband and I were in Morocco a couple of years ago, and one of my absolute favorite memories of that trip was the day we found this funky vegan restaurant in the midst of the medina in Marrakesh. Besides delighting in the wonderful vegan food, and varied options (we were about 4 weeks tired of couscous and vegetable tagine at that point), and enjoying the warm, offbeat atmosphere of the place, when we went upstairs to find somewhere to sit, we found that one of the chairs of the last available table was occupied by a cat who was fast asleep. Instead of shooing the cat away, the host told us that she would get an extra chair, and we sat with the cat, who snored his/her way right through our meal. We had found a truly vegan restaurant, where everyone’s place in the world was respected!! Needless to say we went back every day we were in that fascinating city.
