"May I have some Mogador, please?"

Cafe Mogador, located in the East Village, is a family-run Moroccan restaurant. Cafe Mogador is intimately set with wooden furniture and lit by candles.
As this was my first time having Moroccan food (what was I waiting for?!), I had no idea what to expect when I ordered the Lamb Tagine with Casablanca sauce ($17.50). Though I'm not usually a lamb person, it sounded delicious. According to the restaurant's website, a tagine is a long simmered stew of meat, poultry or lamb, combined with fruit or vegetables. The Casablanca sauce consists of chickpeas, raisins and onions.
The dish can be served with either cous cous or basmati rice. I chose cous cous.

This dish was absolutely incredible. The meat fell right off the bone and the sauce was fantastic - sweet, savory and spicy. Simply put, it hit the spot. I would definitely go to Cafe Mogador again.
