Moroccan cuisine is distinguished by its inimitable blend of sweet and savory flavors, while maracan meals are accompanied by the rhythmic sounds of salt-and-pepper shakers. Please a percussive palate with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of authentic Moroccan fare at Taste of Morocco in Silver Spring. This cozy neighborhood eatery serves an extensive menu of flavorful cuisine in a vibrant, exotic atmosphere. Add stamps to your taste-bud passport with à la carte selections, such as a bastilla appetizer—thin phyllo dough layered with marinated chicken, seafood, or vegetables (small $15.99, medium $25.99)—or hearty entrees, such as chicken-and-date tagine enrobed in homemade saffron sauce ($14.99) and veggie-laden couscous ($12.99). Multicourse feasts are also available, conveniently portioned for two hungry wooers or one lonely, empty-bellied grizzly (starting at $49.99). On Friday and Saturday evenings, Taste of Morocco adds further spice to the dining experience with talented belly dancers who display feats of abdominal coordination while diners' own stomachs contentedly perform the digestion fox trot.
Your Groupon can be redeemed at Marrakesh in Silver Spring or Fez Bistro in Falls Church, Va.
