Nomad, in Marrakech, is thought to be among the best eating places within the metropolis. Owned by two brothers, Kamal and Oussama Laftimi, the institution has shortly turn into the trendiest place to be, and is located amongst all of the hustle and bustle of the souks. The restaurant guarantees a artistic trendy Moroccan menu, while boasting a few of the greatest views of the medina and Atlas Mountains from their terrace.
In fact, I had to go, so I made certain to ebook a rooftop desk at Nomad for our first evening in Marrakech. Sadly, the temporary stint of rain earlier within the day had led to the restaurant closing off the terrace (boo!), however the properly furnished and stylish inside greater than made up for it!
Meals at Nomad
The freshly baked yoghurt bread was implausible with a stunning crust.
This spiced lentil salad was served heat and topped off with chunks of sentimental goat’s cheese and beetroot. The flavour mixture is a traditional, with the creaminess of the cheese balancing out the tartness of the beetroot, while additionally including a complete new dimension of style to the lentils.
Having been advisable this traditional hen tagine by our disgruntled and moody waiter, I used to be disenchanted in what was served to me. The big quarter hen arrived lined in a thick zesty lemony sauce, with just a few greens scattered across the plate; the presentation was disappointing and a few parts appeared to be lacking (the couscous, the accompanying sauces, the dates and apricots). The hen itself didn’t style recent and was fairly dry, resulting in me leaving most of it apart.
BW performed it secure and opted for Nomad’s common spiced lamb burger with aubergine, candy caramelised onions, and a harissa mayonnaise. The lamb patty was deliciously delicate and had been cooked to an exquisite medium pink, however I’d have preferred extra of the smoky harissa sauce because the burger felt dry with so little.
The full invoice for 2 amounted to 280MAD so £23 which is £11.50 every, excluding drinks and repair. I used to be underwhelmed by my meal at, what’s deemed as, certainly one of Marrakech’s greatest eating places. My first actual tagine was mediocre and the employees have been each dismissive and nowhere to be seen when desirous to order/pay the invoice. Possibly it was an off-day for Nomad, however I’m not too certain it might be close to the highest of my checklist of Marrakech restaurant suggestions.
