   Cafe Morocco (Review)
Although hidden in the shadows of a strip mall, this place has plain decor; however, its food is excellent. Traditional staples like hummus, falafel and kabobs complement other specialties that are exotic. A good choice is the Moroccan Tagine (a dish of chicken or lamb with vegetables and spices) or Mujadara (an Egyptian concoction of chicken with rice and lentils mixed with spice and vegetables). For a lunch treat, try a Shawarma, a Mediterranean style burrito.

The bar has a French-style draft beer system, one of only a handful in the city, where glasses are rinsed just before serving, to ensure the glass is clean and to improve the head of the beer. Belgian brews like Leffe and Hoegaarden are on offer, and bartenders mix drinks with aplomb. A small plates menu is based around French-influenced North African cooking - favorites include merguez (spicy lamb sausages) and pastilla, a Moroccan dish of spiced chicken tucked inside a puff pastry, while the entrees include plenty of steak and seafood. Upstairs, the small dining area is has been reconfigured as a North African-style lounge, with low chairs and couches, curtains and artworks.

Made with brittle phyllo dough, honey, nuts, rosewater, and fruit, these Persian pastries and cookies delight the eye and palate. Variations on baklava are many—pistachios, walnuts, and pine nuts are among the possibilities. Some are sweetened with honey, others with sugar water; there are diamonds and ruched rolls no wider than a cigar. Kadayif—shredded wheat—is another medium. Trendy chefs use it to coat shrimp and fish, but here it’s fashioned into bundles of honey and nuts or scattered atop a sweet moist cake. There are cookies white with powdered sugar, fragrant with apricots and dates.

   Darna Fine Moroccan Cuisine
13114 Shaker Square, Cleveland, OH, 44120
(216) 862-2910
The restaurant is owned and operated by Said Ouaddaadaa. Darna, meaning "our house", focuses almost exclusively on authentic Moroccan cuisine, entrees large enough to share. The menu is heavy on lamb dishes, couscous and spicy stews with chicken, lamb or beef. Cumin, saffron, turmeric and coriander spices are used in many dishes and are all imported from Morocco. Elaborate couscous platters, with versions featuring lamb, chicken or strictly vegetables. Tagines, slow-cooked stews with meat and vegetables, served in earthenware vessels.

The first Moroccan restaurant on the East Coast, is tucked away behind South Street on a tiny quiet passageway. Marrakesh is a sensual, exotic adventure where guests lounge on rug covered banquets, surrounded by colorful pillows, in a dimly lit incense-scented room. The evening begins with the hand washing ritual, followed by an authentic Moroccan seven-course feast, and ending with the traditional tea ceremony. Diners indulge in eating with their fingers using pieces of flatbread to scoop up the North African delicacies. Herb infusions of cinnamon, coriander, cumin, mint, and cardamom, along with the sun drenched flavors of almonds, raisins, olives, dates, honey, and fresh fruits from the Mediterranean coast make this restaurant an oasis in the city's south side.
