succulant moroccan cuisine has made its way to williamsburg! cafe mogador has a warm, welcoming ambiance and an enclosed outdoor seating area that let’s you enjoy dinner under the stars.
upon entering the restaurant, you can smell the allspice, dill and plethra of other exotic spices. we started with the halumi cheese appetizer pictured above. the briny, bright flavor of the cheese, paired with the roasted tomato, pepper and pearl onion skewer was a perfect introduction. for our entree, we split a chicken cous cous and mixed grill platter. the cous cous was fluffy and filled with plump raisins, tender vegetables and roasted chickpeas. the marinated grilled meat skewers were grilled over a coal fire and served with more vegatables and basmati rice. the compliments were a huge bonus too; there was a small side of a spicy, minced grainy type dipping sauce, a cucumber yogurt sauce and a tabouli salad.
keep this place in mind if you’re being health conscious as well. the menu had plenty of waist friendly options. good find, we’ll definitely be back (and they deliver!)~
had to add another paragraph to this post tonight, my girlfriends and i stopped in for brunch this afternoon. the service was a little slow but understandably so, it was packed. it took us longer to get our mimosas and bloody mary’s than our entrees but when they turned up, we were all smiles. the food was spot on, seems like there are just a few kinks to work out behind the bar. i’ll definitley be back for brunch though, mogador was buzzing with fresh young faces and they have something to offer no matter what you’re in the mood for.
brunch, lunch or dinner, i’d say cafe mogador’s been a cool and delicious addition to the neighborhood~
