Veggie combo, tomato sauce, chermoula
This restaurant is just okay. I was hoping for a much more flavor-packed meal that would meet my expectations for Moroccan food and also justify the fairly high prices. Unfortunately their bread tasted like it was stale and then reheated and the zaalook (eggplant appetizer) was on the bland side. I did like their couscous and their khardoula, which had pretty tasty potatoes and carrots. The waitress totally forgot about my mint tea (but didn't forget to put it on the bill), which made me sad because I was in a bit of a hurry and didn't have time to remind her about it and then drink it. She was apologetic and nice about forgetting about the tea. I took some of my food home and it was a lot better the next day. Nothing I ate was bad, it was just okay. Maybe Aicha is better for meat eaters (I can't speak on their non-vegetarian items) but my selections were all somewhat forgettable. Nice decor though.
I have been here 3 times over the last year and have been more and more impressed. The first time I went just with my wife and ate the vegetarian entrees (khardoula and couscous). They were perfectly cooked, very flavorful and the portions were generous. The service was good, especially since I've never seen this place get very busy.
The second time, we went with friends and got the same vegetarian entrees as well, the (vegetarian) bean tagine (unfortunately, this dish isn't on their menu anymore), and a chicken dish (I forget the name). Again, everything was cooked to perfection. The third time we ate here as part of a Groupon deal, which included a pot of mint tea, two bowls of lentil soup, an eggplant appetizer, two entrees (we got the khardoula and the lamb tagine) and two desserts (we got the rice pudding and flan). It was a real feast! This time we went with our infant son, who immediately took to the lady who runs the place. The lady was also extremely sweet to him and when we left she even gave him a sweet little kiss. The lamb tagine was excellent and the meat was very juicy and just melted in your mouth. The simple desserts were subtly flavored, making them more unique than what you get at most other places.
I would surely come back here many more times.
Aicha was fantastic. I had the Khardoula and it was PERFECT. Initially when we sat down, we were not given menus and so the few minute wait seemed forever. But after that, the waitress was very nice and the food was so savory. There is probably room for one group of 8 people, but not enough space for multiple groups; mostly 2-4 person seating arrangements.
Deliciousness! Was able to get in without a wait for a party of four on a Saturday night at 9.30ish. The Taktouka was excellent - it's grilled bell peppers and tomatoes blended together in a chunky sauce to use as dip for bread. It was tangy and spiced just right.
The chicken kabobs were nicely done, juicy and seasoned just right. But the best dish of the night was the Khardoula - Potatoes, Zucchini, Carrots, garlic and mechouia peppers in paprika and chermoula sauce. It was sooooo good. The sauce was tomato based and it went perfectly with rice. P.S. You have to order rice separate.
Our waitress was quite nice. And it's BYOB! Great place!
