Cafe Moroc

Date: July 2011
Location: 49 Front Street East, Toronto, Ontario

Summerlicious is back this year. This year I get to try out a few different restaurants and hoping they are going to be great. The first one is Cafe Moroc. I have no idea what to expect because I never tried Moroccan food before. Neither knowing where the country is on the world map lol. Base on this fact, I only wanted to try out their lunch just in case I don't like their food beside it is cheaper too. As usual, for a $15 lunch I got appetizer, menu, and dessert. My overall impression is, I will go back for dinner for their regular menu.

Cafe Greens
Baby lettuces, dressed with Champagne and pomegranate vinaigrette, topped with fresh fine cut vegetables, cherry tomatoes and balsamic cremini mushrooms
Veggies are fresh and the vinaigrette has a hint of sweetness. Love it!

Hand rolled “Moroccan Cigars”, hot crispy pastry stuffed with a mixture of mildly spiced beef, cashews and raisins, topped with chipotle aioli
Taste a bit like curry beef spring roll. Not sure what the orange sauce is but it taste good.

Mango Salmon
Pan Seared 5-ounce fillet of salmon, topped with mango salsa, served with saffron basmati rice and traditional Moroccan root vegetables
Very moist and tender salmon. The sweetness of the mango makes it taste even better.

Marrakesh Express
Julienne of chicken breast wrapped tightly with honey-butter onion, Mediterranean olives, couscous and rich tagine sauce, served with choice of Moroc Frites or Café greens.
I can't really tasted the chicken as it was over powered by the yummy couscous. 

Moroc Steak Baguette
6-ounce AAA Angus New York Strip loin, seasoned and grilled, blanketed with caramelized onions and horseradish mayonnaise, served with choice of Moroc Frites or Café Greens.
According to my friend, the steak was average and  the french fries are soggy. 

Brulee Royal
A rich and flavourful crème brulée
This is one of the best creme brulee I have ever tried. 
It was not too sweet so I could tasted the custard.
