Cambridge, MA 02139-4046
A small and tasty Moroccan restaurant four blocks off of Central Square. If you like heavily spiced food, I highly recommend the tapas platters. The flavored lemonade and chocolate mousse dessert are also tasty. The place only holds twenty or so people, so get there early to avoid waiting in line. Also, they only take cash.
Since it is so small and far from Massachusetts Avenue, it can be hard to find. Several times I've heard the maître d' giving directions on the phone. To get there, take the T's Red Line and get off at Central Square. Follow Mass Ave. away from Harvard Square. Turn right onto Pearl Street and continue onto the fourth block, after Auburn Street. The cafe is on your left, in a small, nondescript store front.
