Kasbah Cafe Bold Street Liverpool 28th January 2017

Kasbah is on Bold Street and it is always busy, as we walked past it several times, so went in to book for a Saturday night, just in case, good job we did.

I did not manage a photo from the front, as there was work going on and lots of scaffolding, but inside, it is a multitude of colours, textures, smells and great ambience.

On the menu outside, it has vegan options, all clearly marked, which makes for easy ordering.

Kasbah is not licensed, so no alcohol served, but with such good food, its not something we missed, we enjoyed it that much.

When we arrived on a busy Saturday night, the place was buzzing and vibrant, we were shown to our table and ordered drinks, Moroccan lemonade, such a refreshing drink with plenty of mint.

We started with barba mcharmela, a beetroot salad and zaalouk, an aubergine dish of roast aubergine, tomato, cumin and smoked paprika, served with flatbread.   I loved the simplicity of these two dishes, just the kind of food I adore, it was a great start to the meal.

Main course was berkani tagine of chickpeas and spinach, with saffron rice, it was piping hot, so much so I had to leave it 5 mins too cool, before I could even attempt to eat it.

The tagine was perfectly spiced and seasoned, so easy to ruin a dish with the spices clashing, but with the saffron rice, it was a perfect warming winter dish.

I was far too full for a dessert, which was oranges with cinnamon and rosewater, so instead chose Moroccan mint tea, which was served in a lovely teapot and glass cup.

Kasbah is a wonderful place, apparent by the number of people coming in to eat, quite late on, I would definitely return, when back in Liverpool
