MOROCCAN| Definitely one of the top spots on our list so far! The place was perfectly Moroccan themed with dishes that were not the usual for us but turned out to be perfect. Had the best rendition of a fresh toast! Just look at it, it’s not your average one! We also had Moroccan Eggs (Two poached eggs with spicy stewed tomato, roasted potatoes, and pita bread) and a typical Middle Eastern Breakfast (Two eggs any style with hummus, tabouli, arabic salad, and zahatar pita) which were amazing! We’re definitely going back. A must try for sure! 😍

The esteemed chef looked to Dinarjat for authentic Moroccan cuisine, which he says “should be part of the best cooking in the world.” A guide dressed in a traditional costume escorts you to the open patio dining area, decked in magnificent Arab-Andalusian-style decor. Sample an array of gastronomic dishes like kebabs, couscous, and local pastries. Dining in an African country opened chef Robuchon’s eyes to the wonders of cooking with spices, which he rarely used in the past. He even said that cumin smelled like wood or smashed insects. However, his views changed after savoring a plate of zaalouk (“zah-luk”)—a Moroccan eggplant salad that highlights the flavors of paprika and cayenne pepper.
