Tajine-New Morrocan Cafe

I had lunch at Tajine at 552 Jones between O'Farrell and Geary.

The space is tiny and rather worn for a new place. Mohamed is the chef/owner and very hospitable. I looked over the chalk board and asked for guidance in ordering something representative of morrocan cuisine.

I had a lamb stew with artichoke hearts and peas. I asked which spices he used and the ones that he shared were Ginger, Tumeric, salt and pepper. It tasted very good and he served it with the morrocan flat bread, (it was toasted in the oven as opposed to fresh).

There is a picture from a newspaper showing him pouring tea. When he brought the tea in a engraved metal teapot, he pours it from a standing position with a lot of flourish, interestingly he opened the lid to show me that it was made with Fresh Mint leaves not dried.The total bill $11.13 with tax.

They also have kabobs and sandwiches on french bread which can be made on the flat bread if you ask.
