Spice Road Table – Moroccan Omelet

This experience took place on  March 7, 2014

On this visit to Spice Road Table, Assim was our server (from Casablanca)… We ordered the Mediterranean Omelet (this is the least expensive item at Spice Road Table, $7).

It was paired with the Marqes de Caceres Santinella white. I had this during the Food and Wine Festival last autumn and expected to enjoy it quite a bit. Nick ordered the Ambar Especial Lager (Spain).

It was very nice that Assim left the bottle on the table so that we could take a closer look at them (he said that a lot of guests liked to do that).Moroccan Omelet Spice Road Table 07MAR2014 - 2

I thought that this was good and Nick really liked it a lot.

Assim kindly brought out a little taste of the red and the rose MCSR so that I could compare them to the white.

  • Red – I say tannin, Nick says too drying
  • Rose – I say sour, Nick says too sour
  • White – I say just right, Nick says too sweet

The olives on the skewer were really nice, but the omelet was pretty bland…

It was served with a slightly spicy sauce (which it needed). This isn’t an item that we’re likely to order again. There are other options that are more flavorful to our tastebuds.
