Moroccan delights at La Mamounia
Carrer València 193
When Moroccan food comes to mind, we conjure up images of tagines, slowly cooked stewed meat, fruits delicately mixed with meat dishes and refreshing mint tea to wash it all down with. La Mamounia offers just that and all with great hospitality.
La Mamounia, located on Carrer de Valencia, you can’t help but stop by when walking post as it exudes elaborate Moroccan decadence. Lights stream the ceilings, traditional shoes are mounted on the main wall and the rich colors, candles and other delicate touches give sheer opulence.
The tagine de carne picado y huevos, although not as flavorsome as expected, was still a reasonable dish. We ordered a selection of breads and caviar de berejenas, which is delicious. The soup was sublime, a perfect blend of flavors from the vegetables. For postre we went with a mini trio selection along with fresh mint tea. If you like Moroccan food and nice aesthetics, and the occasional belly dancer (Saturday night), give La Mamounia a visit.
