Spice Road Table – Mussels Tangine (again)

This dining experience took place on Saturday, April 19, 2014

Lunch today was simple… Mussels Tagine.

We had a new-to-us server, Latifa, she’s been in America for over 3.5 years and came over to Spice Road Table from Restaurant Marrakesh. She was quite attentive and we had a lovely visit to Spice Road Table.

I ordered a glass of Marques de Caceres Santinella (a favorite white of mine that I discovered during 2013 Epcot Food & Wine Festival). Nick had an Estrella Damm.

the garlic was abundant and the lemon confit was very noticeable (we found a chunk of preserved lemon, yum!)

The preserved lemon was excellent with the Santinella

ahhh, more preserved lemon!

Latifa had a few menu suggestions that we hope to try in the future…

  • The lamb slider can be ordered medium or medium rare without the bun
  • To make the stuffed grape leaves tastier – ask for extra capers, raisins and nutmeg
