I've heard of how popular the restaurant Kasbah is in Boracay. But I would hardly fly to Boracay just to try it. I was therefore very much delighted when they opened a branch in the much more accessible Fort! Moroccan food, here we come!
The ambience is just so amazing. It feels sooo Morocco! How I know when I haven't ever been to Morocco is a big question. :D But the place has a perfect "chill" vibe.
|Moroccan gunpowder mint tea + watermelon shake|
We started with drinks! My date had a glass of watermelon shake, while I had the MUST-TRY Moroccan gunpowder mint tea. I just had to try it and it was amazingly... strong!!! I wanted less alcohol but then it just wouldn't be the original mix. Drinking the gunpowder was odd though. I had to demurely spit them out from time to time. :p
|moutabal (baba ghanoush) php140|
I would always remember that I lost weight when I went to India because we mostly ate dips+pitaor any bread while we were there. And so I got it in my head that these things are very healthy. I think they really are. :D So we just had to try the moutabal which is basicanlly eggplant and tahini caviar squashed and roasted into yummy-ness!
|Berber Lamb Tagine php745/solo php1115/to shart|
We ordered the berber lamb tagine because it said in the menu that it's, "deeply spiced melt-in-your-mouth tender lamb with oranges and prunes in a rich tangy thick sauce" and we had just that. The lamb was certainly very tender and the flavor the perfect marriage of spices.
|Kasbah meat lover's platter php920|
Lastly, we had the Kasbah meat lover's platter which included a stick of beef kabab, of chicken kabab and merguez sausage kabab. Everything was tender but a bit on the dry side which was fine because we had the yogurt dip anyway. :)
Kasbah is one good Moroccan restaurant! The food was great; the service very efficient. (Though they wanted to charge extra for the extra yogurt dip.) The overall experience of eating there was great! The perfect place to chill.
