involved a great meal at Koutoubia. Even better, it gave us a chance to sit down with friends for a long spell and just gabble about everything under the sun. I guess I've finally completed the triumvirate of LA Moroccan restaurants. Koutoubia is a bit more like a 'regular' restaurant... you actually get cutlery. I guess as long as we're going Moroccan, I prefer to get my hands in there in a big communal platter, but I certainly can't fault the food - excellent.
