What’s next? Last chance #moorishlunch, next stop Garden of Unearthly Delights!

Happy New Year! What a lovely summer break that was. If not a little noisy – Chef Mo’ took the time off to get out the angle grinder and cut a new servery window for the #moorishvan with the help of Papa Moorish Peter (never a dull moment!)

Boys and power tools – a mighty bond.

We’ve since hit the Adelaide streets running in 2015, and its about to get even more exciting for Moorish Bites.  Coming up…

TODAY Sunday 25 January – Adelaide Night Market from 4 to 8pm, North Terrace

The wonderful Adelaide Night Market a monthly event held in the warmer months which had its 2nd Birthday in December.

It’s a great collection of both the well-known food trucks as well as smaller, family-run food stalls, plus artisanal craft and food goodies.  It’s also a great use of the usually under-enjoyed, but lovely stretch of garden along the top of Government House.

We’re excited to debut the Tagine Burger – slow-cooked lamb in Moroccan spices, topped with “Tefaya” (caramelised onion, sultanas and fried almonds) on a bed of saffron coleslaw, served on a toasted brioche bun.  Special today only for $10.00

Find us on North Terrace, near the War Memorial and corner of Kintore Avenue from 4-8pm.

The Tagine Burger!

The Porch Sessions – 9 February 2015 – gates from 5pm – location to be disclosed (intriguing!)

Our souk street food will be complementing the February, seaside-bound installment of the Porch Sessions.

This eclectic musical gathering creates a musical oasis, bringing the tunes, food and wine, Persian rugs, fairy lights and all-round good times to a secret residential garden once a month across the warmer seasons.

Tickets have already sold out for this and the next one (wowsers!), so if you were not lucky enough to nabs yours this time around you should stay tuned for their later installments here and be very, very quick!

The Garden of Unearthly Delights – 12 February to 15 March 2015

We are pumped to be selected to be a part of the Garden this year in our super stall form.  We’ll be serving our full compliment for the Fringe folk at the original and the best magical oasis of the festival season.

Check out the program here to see a show as well as savoring on our souk street food.

Usual Garden hours are 5pm to late Monday to Thursday and 10am to very late on Friday to Sunday –  look for the Mo’rockin Moorish Bites stall!

Chef Mohamed’s Moorish Hometown

Just recently the New York Times sent the communal beating heart of Adelaide aflutter with their props to our fine city, including a shout out to our street food prowess, described as a:

robust dining scene that encompasses everything from street (Fork on the Road) to posh (Hill of Grace, atop the redeveloped Adelaide Oval)

Check out the full glory of #RADelaide or otherwise adjust your bucket list accordingly here.

IN ADDITION, The New York Times also recently gave Chef Mohamed’s Moroccan hometown a beautiful write up:

Chefchaouen, known for its blue-painted walls - Ben Sklar for The New York Times

Chefchaouen, known for its blue-painted walls – Ben Sklar for The New York Times

Of course, Chefchaouen — or Chaouen, as it’s sometimes called — is already famous as an outrageously picturesque blue-walled city. Inside the ancient gated medina nearly every building is painted an arresting shade of cerulean or azure, the sky blues juxtaposed with white trim and terra-cotta rooftops. Twisting cobblestone paths lead up and up, around the ocher-colored casbah, past a crumbling cemetery where goats graze, to a landscape of green hills and mountaintops, uninterrupted sky extending beyond. It’s like being inside a Chagall painting.

We can’t wait to go back on our next food safari and to bring back even more exciting flavours and Moroccan artisan products to our ‪‎#moorishflock‬ of Adelaide!

If you want to lose yourself for a few minutes in a beautiful pocket of Morocco, read the article and then Google “Chefchaouen” and prepare for a serious case of wanderlust.

Otherwise check back in for our upcoming series of posts on Mohamed’s life in Morocco, Moroccan food, travel and culture.
