Oran Cafe Reopens

Oran Cafe/Morrocan cuisine, previously mentioned here has reopened and we stopped in yesterday for lunch. For the public transportation folks, it seems about midway between Maverick and Airport. We walked through Maverick ; made a few pit stops and it was about a 25 min walk.

I would describe the decor as, few tables, not much decoration. I was happy to see the place was immaculate..given it's recent problems. Staff (owner) was very friendly and we started with a pot of green tea w/mint, nice start.

No printed menu but yesterday they offered a chicken dish, a cous cous/ lamb/assorted vegetables and a beef/prune dish. We shared the second two and both were excellent. We were among the few customers and the owner ran out to buy a few ingredients; but unfortunately couldn't find habaneros..:) but the spicing was subtle and delicious. Started with a very fresh salad with an unusual and tast ydressing...which I assume is Moroccan..:)

Another customer who appeared to be a regular was reading MC's review from the Phoenix.

My first taste of Morrocan food; but won't be my last. As others have said, this is a true discovery...ala Angela's and what I like about the lovers sharing unique finds.

1 word of caution. When they run out of food, they're you might want tocall first..567 1900
