Djemaa el Fna food stalls are a great place to eat and there are loads of them to choose from. They offer a wide variety of local food prepared fresh on the spot for as little as 2 to 3 euros (depending on what/how much you eat). They start serving at dusk until around 11.30 pm and, as the food is on display, one can take the time to look around (expect a little "encouragement" but just ignore it). For those who enjoy fish most stalls offer deep fried flat fish (Atlantic sole) and the meaty "conger". Some would prefer to avoid raw vegetables (but there are plenty of deliciously cooked ones) and bottles should be opened in front of you. The grilled kebabs (brochettes) - pieces of lamb or minced meat - and grilled aubergines (eggplants) and sweet (bell) peppers are succulent also. Some stalls offer spiced potato cakes which are particularly good.
