Post of Shame. Remedied with Content Overload!

We have been bad, bad bloggers. Please forgive us?

We will now reward you with CONTENT OVERLOAD!

We had a great time in the Garden of Unearthly Delights over four weeks of the Adelaide Fringe – we got to share our love of Moroccan street food, meet some lovely people, feel a bit chuffed about so many nice comments and reviews & soak up the atmosphere that only the GOUD brings to Adelaide one special time a year.

Just one of a few very nice reviews.

Some of our very popular Meloui – home-made pastry grilled and filled with spinach, rocket & feta. Optional fillings chicken, lamp, pumpkin, eggplant, mushroom and capsicum. Now we’re hungry just writing that sentence. Excuse us while we go whip a batch up…

And then we were exhausted:

Note: Moorish Bites not actually operated by cats.

We managed to rally and:

  • Served up a storm at the last (and as usual fabulous) Adelaide Night Market for the 2014/2015 season – fear not good Adelaide folk, it is back for a new season!
  • Took the Mo’rockin’ van on a jaunt to the Barossa to celebrate Easter with Whistler Wines – a beautiful cellar door and people who know to put on a very good show.

  • Celebrated Adelaide’s Muslim community and the amazing multicultural support of Adelaide at the first Al Salam Festival.
  • Shared some tagine with a very large, well-groomed and hungry dog at the RSCPA Million Paws Walk.
Tagine for all!

Tagine for all!

  • Took the van on another outing not once but twice to our other premium wine region, specifically the beautiful Lazy Ballerina at Kuitpo, for their guests to relax in what has to be one of the best gardens around with some great tunes, tucking into our #moorishbites, and sampling some great wine.

  • Helped the next batch of young and eager students get acquainted with Adelaide University – we’re sure a good feed of #moorishbites helped them along!
Uni is better with Moorish Bites!

  • Two most excellent Forks on the Road – one at Harts Mill Port Adelaide & the other at Bonython Park – both had a huge turnout, which warms the heart of humble food trucks like us to see the support Adelaide has for our street food scene.  Good news too – there are many more Forks approaching!

  • We celebrated Moorish Bites’ First Birthday at the Semaphore Music Festival – one year to the day since we started trading, with Semaphore being our very first event.

  • The first (and hopefully one of many!) Victoria Square Art Market was held just last weekend – the turn out in support of local artists was amazing and the atmosphere made for a perfect sunny Sunday afternoon in the city.
Sunday in the centre of the city - what Adelaide is all about.

Putting the sun in Sunday.

  • Plus we got to cater a bunch of private functions and share our passion for Moroccan street food in people’s homes, workplaces and schools – weddings, dinners, school fundraisers, birthday milestone celebrations and baby showers. You celebrate it, we cater it!  If you are planning an event and are looking for something a bit different and a lot tasty, don’t hesitate to email moorishbites@gmail.com to make an enquiry about what we can do for you.

We also took time to have a bit of a winter hibernation.  Chef Mo’ took the opportunity to go back to his homeland of Morocco (and get some sun!) and could not escape his love of street food (and posing with it):

So. Again apologies for our lack of website content.  We hope this update has made (some) amends.

Tune in shortly for a rundown of our upcoming events – it’s going to be bigger & better for Moorish Bites over the warmer months of 2015/2016 and we can’t wait to share it with you 🙂

Don’t forget you can also find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Yours in tasty, tasty goodness,

Mo’ & Meg

Our first (and lovely) write-up!

It was the crew at Moorish Bites that made the night for me, and showed that there can be Moroccan Spice & All Things Nice

We love to get great feedback and this article made us all feel a little bit chuffed!

We’re a family affair, and our Moorish Mum has been a great help getting us off the ground – it’s nice that someone else noticed just how great she is too!
