Eating Omaha....Marrakech

On Sunday after Liturgy we met with Jeff and Michale at the Marrakech. They had tasted this place at Taste of Omaha this summer and had been dying to go back. The favorite was the Chicken Shawarma which I have had before at El Basha but here it was fresher and tasty to be sure. The menu was rather small with few choices. Michale had the special which was a wedding pie (Pastilla) stuffed with dark meat chicken and almonds but came with a hefty price of $20. Not your average lunch fare. It was a bit pricey for lunch and I was confused when we left because the other 3 entrees were on special for $4.95 that day but none us were charged that. The total lunch bill with tip for the four of us was $80.

We tried the sampler platter for appetizers and it was delightful with a variety of tidbits including Falafel, Hummus, Samosas and 2 ratatouille's with a side of pita triangles. The chai tea won my wife's seal of approval and the waiter/ owner described its making in detail. Very nice little cozy place with an on line menu. Don't be afraid to go outside you comfort zone.
