This colorful Moroccan spot has become a well-loved staple of Clark Street, and the reasons why are all on the plate. The briwates (Moroccan egg rolls) are fine, but the Andalous appetizer combo is sublime. The “famous couscous” left us wondering how it earned its moniker, but the chicken in the Meknes tagine falls from the bone, crusted in crispy skin. When your plate has been cleaned, a steaming cup of Moroccan tea steps in, giving you a good excuse to linger.
