Morocco, a country located in North Africa has a huge mix of influences from Middle Eastern, Meditterenean and Arab countries based on its history. This is reflected on how varied the Moroccan cuisine is today.
HT couple strided together to fulfill the travelling around the world through our tummies dream to this al fresco eatery in front of a mosque. It was not difficult to find as the street was not busy and most of the neighboring shophouses were already closed (so they kinda stood out).
*Tagin is a dish named after a special pot used for cooking the dish. It consists of two parts; a base unit which is flat and circular with low sides, and a large cone or dome-shaped cover that rests inside the base during cooking. The cover is so designed to promote the return of all condensation to the bottom. (they don't serve it with the cover though)
Mixed Kebab (4.5/5) - we didn't miss their kebabs, of course. This dish was pretty cheap and I was intrigued if they have sacrificed the portion or the taste, but no, they absolutely did not. You can see how many pieces i got for a little over $5 sgd!!! On the side was a good portion of hummus salad. First bite, of those burger patty look alike, "oomph", it was delicious! It was seasoned well and it was not dry nor oily. The chicken pieces were well-spiced too, but i prefer the red meat so i guess i'll get myself just beef kebab next time.
Hamus (hummus) salad (3/5) - hubby ordered this as his side, but he was expecting something else. This abundant portion of salad was ok, lots of lycopene and just tasted fresh, nothing fancy.
Moroccan Mint Tea (4/5) - our favorite for the night! I always take moroccan mint tea but from those teabag in a box so i can't wait to taste their version (it might be the real thing). It was served in a nice teapot (we felt like moroccan prince and princess for a minute) and with 2 shotglasses (same as Turkish Cuisine) with fresh mint leaves! It was slightly sweet and had a unique, fresh tea taste. It was a pleasant drink to share with.
Moroccan Apple Juice (4/5) - something cold...yogurt, cinnamon spices and apple! It's like apple pie in liquid form. Yum yum!
Service was ok, not all waiters speak fluent English but they understand the menu, the food...
The owners were very friendly. :)
