A Moroccan Dinner

Last week, pb surprised me by taking me to have Mediterranean cuisine! SoL Sun Belt Cookery promises “an authentic culinary voyage around the Mediterranean, with a Moroccan twist“.  I was intrigued by the menu items as I’ve never tried Mediterranean fine dining before.

To start, we had the Pan Seared Scallops & Prawns. This dish was very fresh, and full of robust flavour! I especially loved the pairing with crispy pork belly slices. I only wish the portion had been a bit bigger, as we devoured this in a jiffy!

For our mains, I had the Brome Lake Duck Duo.  The pan seared duck breast was a little too rare for my liking, but the leg was cooked to perfection! The accompanying risotto cake had a quirky flair to it – something I enjoyed because of its unique taste. What I really liked about this dish was the side of fennel & orange slices – they were a perfect complement to the duck meat!

pb had the Moroccan Confit of Strip Loin Beef Tagine. This dish was served with a side of flat bread. I tried several bites of the stew-like mixture, and loved it! The beef, tomatoes, and eggs were cooked in a gravy that was rich in spices and full-bodied in taste. The flat bread was fluffy, yet maintained a touch of crispness – delicious!

To wrap up, we had Moroccan Beignets for dessert. These were absolutely amazing!! Warm beignets fresh out of the oven, with house-made chocolate drizzled over top, and sprinkled with roasted almonds & frosted sugar.. Mmm! It was the perfect combination of savoury & sweet!

I’ll definitely be back again to try out more interesting Moroccan delights from their menu the next time!

  1. The beef tagine looks so good! added with the soft lighting and presentation, it certainly feels very welcoming. I’ll have to pay a visit when I’m in the Robson area 🙂
