As you load up your camel-tongue for its expedition across Fez Authentic Moroccan Cuisine's menu of North African delicacies, start with bisteeya, a sweet, flaky phyllo pastry filled with chicken and almonds and dusted with cinnamon that just might be the only appetizer that doubles as dessert ($4.95). For a main course, adventurous appetites will never go wrong with a tagine (Moroccan stew baked in a clay pot) such as the beef shaban dotted with apricot, almond, honey, and sesame seeds ($15.95). Otherwise, sample the national dish: lamb and vegetable couscous ($16.95), which is traditionally eaten with one's right hand, and never with one's dorsal tentacle. The jumbo shrimp brouchette kebab (marinated in charmoula sauce, $13.95) combines the pleasures of eating and impaling things on sharp sticks. A postprandial mint tea (green tea with spearmint, $2.50) finishes a meal in authentic Moroccan fashion.
