A local bohemian crowd frequents this comfortable North African restaurant to feast on Moroccan food and wine. Without the ubiquitous lanterns and copper plate tables, only a fading desert mural and a few nonchalantly placed tagine plates give it away as Moroccan.
But the food is too good for you to notice the frayed edges, and Malika and her friendly staff offer better hospitality than any décor ever could. Tagines come hot and bubbling to your table and are served with small plates of couscous sprinkled with cinnamon.
What’s more, food is served right up till one in the morning, which is great if you find yourself getting peckish after exploring the indefatigable bars of the area. Since they don’t take reservations, queues often snake out into the street, so you may have to get there early after all.
