Restaurant Marrakesh

It had been more than 10 years since we last dined at Restaurant Marrakesh. I’d forgotten how pretty the dining room is…

 

In fact it was so nice in there that it made me feel like getting up from my seat and dancing…

 

Ok, ok…not me, but a girl can dream can’t she? :laughing:

First the menu…

We started with some Moroccan bread…

 

Then some drinks…

 

Marrakesh Express – Made with Cruzan Coconut Rum, orange juice, pineapple juice, topped with Myers’s Dark Rum – $8.99
& Hot Moroccan Mint (Green) Tea – $2.99

Those of you who know me already know which of these was mine. ;)

I also ordered an appetizer for us to share…

 

APPETIZER COMBINATION FOR TWO – Beef brewat rolls, chicken bastilla and jasmina salad – $16.95

The beef brewat rolls and chicken bastilla were similar as both consisted of thin layers of pastry filled with minced meat (one beef, one chicken & almonds) that is lightly fried and then sprinkled with cinnamon and powdered sugar. I remember that one of these was extremely dry (the meat was dried out and hard), so not as good as the other, but I don’t recall now which. I do remember though that my favorite of these by far was the jasmina salad. The salad had olives, feta cheese, cucumbers, diced tomatoes and was topped with a really good honey mustard vinaigrette.

Then my son and I both had the…

 

Chicken Kebabs – Grilled Brochettes of Chicken Breast served with Olive Salad and Dried Fruit Sweet Couscous

 

While my daughter chose…

 

Shish Kebab – Grilled Tenderloin of Beef with Mixed Vegetable Yellow Rice

These entrees were deemed to be equally good and both rated a 4 out of 5. :thumbsup2

My daughter declared she was too full for dessert and given their limited dessert choices, my son and I decided to go elsewhere to satisfy our sweet tooth.
