Tara Kitchen (Schenectady)

Track season is here so we went to Tara Kitchen recently. We had dinner outdoors on their brand, new deck. Service was friendly, owners are very nice people. Now on to the food:


*ras-el-hanout seasoned grilled fish
*eggplant roasted garlic and tomato dip with pita


*SO had lamb meatballs in tomato sauce with poached egg (our server and the owner advised him that all the other lamb dishes were even better!)
*Tagine chicken with preserved lemons and green olives. Accompanied with brown rice. I ate SO's rice also :)

We had mint tea and baklava for dessert. This place is a gem, can't wait to go back!

We have harrisa often (thanks, Roma Foods) so passed on dishes with it.
Service is relaxed and all tagines are made to order so this might not be a good choice if you're in a hurry. Go, relax, enjoy the deliciousness. Regarding their wine list, they only serve Morrocan wines.
