Moroccan food is known for its distinct taste and dishes that are a result of the perfect combination of sweet and savoury flavours. The freshness and goodness of Moroccan food are no secret either with chosen healthy ingredients such as prunes and plums for sweetness, or even freshly baked bread.
Knowing that it isn't the easiest to find in Qatar, the ILoveQatar.net (ILQ) team is here with a list of restaurants (in alphabetical order) that will fulfill all your Moroccan food cravings. And of course, they all give you your Moroccan tea fix!
A place to visit for a rather fine-dining take on Moroccan cuisine! Their Chicken Pastila (meat-stuffed filo pastry) along with Tagine Kofta and the famous Harira Soup are some of their dishes you wouldn't want to miss.
Amidst the many eateries packed along Al Nasr street, Elfassia sits on a corner serving some of the freshest Moroccan food. To savour tender pieces of meat cooked to perfection that strikes the right balance of sweetness, try their Beef With Plum. For those who have a preference for chicken, their Roasted Chicken with Daghmira will leave you licking your fingers courtesy, of the onion-based sauce that it is served on. Both dishes come with a serving of freshly baked bread.
A humble home to an assortment of Moroccan dishes that will leave you spoilt for choice. Lamb or Chicken Couscous, Seafood Pasta (Moroccan style), Molokhia (Okra based tagine), and the list goes on with all the items that deserve a taste.
Extravagant interiors, intricate woodwork, private seating, and of course delicious Moroccan food; should be reasons enough to head over to Marakkech Restaurant. Aside from the popular classics, their Hamour Fish Tajine and Vegetable Tajine are definitely worth a try.
A restaurant renowned for its authenticity, Mssamen & Atai serves popular main courses and traditional bites. The Mutton Tagine with Prunes is a must-try classic given the explosive flavours from the juicy meat. To accompany some Moroccan tea, any of the varieties of Msammen (a grilled thin square-shaped flatbread) with a stuffing of your choice will be ideal.
Take a mini-trip to Morocco by visiting Tajeen Restaurant; a cozy lounge-like ambiance within the bustling Souq Waqif to savour traditional favourites. Their Lamb Tajine with Prunes has received the appreciation of many and definitely is a must-try.
Simple in appearance but elaborate in flavours! Twajin Walyly gets the flavour quotient right when it comes to the array of authentic dishes they serve. Their Harira Soup and Chicken Tajine are two popular favourites. Would be best to give them a call in advance to confirm the availability of specific dishes at the given time.
