Around the world in a week with my daughter - Culinary Adventure Staycation (Day 3 - Dinner: Moroccan)

Day 3: Dinner- Moroccan
Restaurant : Kous Kous Moroccan Bistro

Shak-Shukha: Tomato and Onion based chutney spread on pita. They served a side of Carrots cooked in spices along with this.
For Entree: Chicken Tagine (came with a side of saffron rice and Moroccan bread with aioli.
For Dessert: Custard with orange blossom and toasted nuts.

Everything was very tasty and flavorful. Their hot sauce complimented with all the dishes. The Saffron rice was fragrant with butter and saffron which is a delicate balance. The chicken Tagine was a lemony goodness. The bread was warm. Crispy on the outside and soft inside. Aioli was spiced with cumin and garlic which was different from some of the others I have had. Even the carrots were very tasty. The dessert was lightly flavored with orange blossoms and toasted nuts.

Great for a date night or family get together. Very well decorated and the service was very good. They started by asking if we have been to their restaurant before and if we know about Moroccan food which us a nice thing.
I thought the music was a little too loud. Otherwise everything else was great!

It cost us around $45 including tax and tips.

I have taken a week off from work to do a culinary staycation with my 10 year old daughter who is a bigger foodie than myself and an adventurous foodie too.
I wanted to make this experience a memorable one and squeeze in a little bit of learning too.
We will be exploring different cuisines from around the world and learning about their culture and traditions around food
