My recent backpacking trip through Morocco took me to this lovely little restaurant in the middle of Jamaa el Fna in Marrakech (one of Morocco’s most famous market squares). I ate quite a few meals at this particular establishment because of the level of authenticity they brought to the table.
As a Bengali, I’ve had my share of dishes with a variety of spice mixtures but this omelette & kabob tagine was distinct from any other. Most of the flavor came from the delightfully spiced kabobs under the eggs. The meat juices created the most flavorful eggs & served as a great sauce for dipping my loaf of bread that is a staple side for every Moroccan meal.
Harira (stew on the top right corner) is another staple side made with tomatoes & tomato concentrate, lentils, chickpeas, onions, rice (or orzo), & beaten eggs to give it that unique texture.
