Grilled Kebabs with Carrot-Chickpea Salad and Garlic Aïoli (Chermoula Chicken, Lamb Kefta) – $5.75

The lamb has quite a kick to it. It’s a tender and well-cooked, hearty kebab.

This is thigh meat chicken, nicely seasoned. The salad is raisin, chickpea, and shredded carrots, topped with garlic aioli. The chicken is nicely cooked. Seasoned perfectly, but not hot. The slaw is the perfect complement with its sweetness.

Stone-baked Moroccan Bread with Hummus, Chermoula, and Zhoug Dips – $5.00

This was the big winner! It’s a tender, doughy bread with three very nice accompaniments. The hummus, while simple, was restaurant-quality at least. The zhoug is a spicy sauce with cilantro, hot peppers, and garlic. It wasn’t hot, but it was heavy on garlic and cilantro flavors, though it needed more pepper. Still, we found it to be very enjoyable.

There’s probably not a lot of alcohol in this one, but it was really well-balanced. It’s not syrupy like other festival drinks, which was nice. It’s quite refreshing and takes a pretty picture for the budding food photographers out there. We highly recommend this one.
