Moroccan cuisine has not caught on much in Korea, but that’s not to say that it doesn’t have a presence here. There are attempts. Some better than others. Here’s a round-up of 5 known Moroccan places that we picked up on our gastro radar.
Although Rabat has also labeled itself as a wine restaurant, the real value is on their menu that features Moroccan fare, such as tajine and brochettes, as well as some Mediterranean staples. Rabat has locations near Apgujeong Station, Gangnam Station, as well as near Jeongja Station in Bundang.
Also located in the same Gangnam Station area as Rabat, Asilah comes packing the Moroccan heat with a wine menu to boot. Serving tajine, steak, pasta, and salad, Asilah has gone to great lengths to recreate a Moroccan feel through its interior.
While not necessarily an establishment of Moroccan cuisine, HoHum in Hongdae touts its “Tagine Cuisine” of where they’ve used Moroccan cooking principles for producing their world menu, which includes French, Japanese, Korean, and even twists on Swiss Fondue and Hungarian Goulash.
