If you were to judge Tangier Moroccan Cuisine on its location and curb appeal, you probably would pass it by. Sandwiched in a strip mall, this restaurant is marked only by an easy-to-miss sign. But to skip the restaurant would be to deny yourself some of the best, most unique ethnic food in town. Crossing into Tangier Moroccan Cuisine lands you in a well-appointed sheik's lounge, replete with Persian rugs, low couches overflowing with pillows, low tables, elaborate wall decorations, an ever-smiling host, and a mild infusion of incense.
Prepared by native Moroccans well schooled in the savory spicing that balances lemon with cumin, cayenne with fennel, plums with lamb, and almonds with raisins, a meal at Tangier Moroccan Cuisine is an experience that enlivens the taste buds and inspires the spirit.
