The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious tangines, shish kebabs, and yufka growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's deal: for $15, you get $30 worth of Moroccan cuisine and drinks at Tangier's, located on Montford Avenue.
Tangier's features a menu brimming with traditional, flavorful Moroccan dishes. Start your motionless journey to North Africa with a cold mezze (small plate) such as the tchoukchouka, a medley humming in the key of stewed plum tomatoes, green and red bell peppers, garlic, and an ample addition of Moroccan spice ($8). Pamper tongue papillae with the briouates pastels, a handmade pastry made from unleavened dough, stuffed with ground beef, and deep-fried into convenient crispy triangle pockets that can double as paper football props ($9), or attempt the classic chicken tangine, a subtly flavored stew featuring baked chicken wings, preserved lemons, Spanish onions, earthy olives, and fresh coriander and saffron threads ($10). Martinis are made from top-shelf liquor, sangrias are homemade ($6 for a glass), and inspired premier cocktails include the Casablancan––Cîroc vodka with a splash of limoncello and ginger liqueur ($9).
Tangier's boasts seating for about 200 indoors and 60 more seats on the sidewalk, facilitating two activities that go hand in hand—digestion and pedestrian pestering. The owners intended to bring a little of the old country home, serving small plates akin to the cafés lining the beaches of Morocco and the south of Spain. The casually elegant atmosphere is an ideal place to sip some sangria, gorge on spiced meats, and plan out your next trip back to the future.
Reservations recommended. Lunch is served only on the weekends.
- My husband and I had been to Morocco a few years back so we knew what we might expect. The experience here is quite authentic and the food is excellent! – baltofoodie, Urbanspoon
- Went with friends and ordered many small plates (tapas style) of incredible, amazing food. Duck confit over mac and cheese was delectable, mussels, salmon plate, spicy vietnamese beef, and the lamb stroganoff were simply amazing. – Navy89, TripAdvisor
