Caravan, Sahadi's

Pan | Oct 4, 2001 07:56 PM

I had an early dinner (around 5:10 or so) at Caravan Restaurant, 193 Atlantic Av. (south of Court St.). The food was good. I started with Harira soup, which was very tasty, spicy, and salty, and had various kinds of beans and parsley in it. My main dish was called something other than a tagine but was very tagine-like: A sweet and savory chicken with prunes, raisins, and onions, with a savory but not peppery sauce and a major dusting of cinammon and confectioner's sugar. The meal was accompanied by perfectly cruchy toasted pitas and couscous. I drank some delicious sweetened, spiced tea, which was refilled at no extra charge.

Overall, the food was good if not totally amazing. I don't think the restaurant is worth a big detour, but if you're in the area and want some good Moroccan food, you could do a whole lot worse for sure. I overheard a conversation the proprietor was having with an equipment supplier who seemed to be giving him a really hard time. I hope that this place can stay in business. The meal cost just under $20, plus tip.

After dinner, I walked a few doors down to Sahadi's, and decided to buy a package of Armenian cookies called Klishe. They are seasoned with a touch of anise, and other spices I can't readily identify. I like them very much. $5 per package of a bunch of cookies. Look on your right against the wall for the packages of sweets.
