I have always loved Moroccan cuisine, the flavours of the dishes, the spices and it’s culture has been a draw for me. I was happy to visit this new eatery located off bustling Robson street on a couple of occasions since it opened mid spring. The room is a good size with rustic orange walls along with a nice sized patio out front. It’s run by co-owners, Executive Chef Nourdine Majdoubi and Kevin Lin both who are passionate about Moroccan cuisine.

I have had the delicious Lamb Sandwich ($13) with Fig Chutney Green lentil spread, soft¬ goat cheese, fresh mint, baby arugula, harissa mayonnaise, as well as the Hummus ($6) and Truffle Parmesan Fries ($7) which I had dipped into the Hummus. I have also had the Lamb Couscous ($15) served with root vegetables, chickpeas, onion con­fit, raisins, Moroccan jus. One of my friends had the Beef Sandwich ($12) with Prunes and Apricot Marmalade caramelized onion, cornichon relish, white beans ragout, carrots, and baby arugula.
