Dining - Cous Cous (Moroccan)
Cous Cous was the first place we ate when we arrived in London. We went out for dinner, and were a little shocked at the prices. But, because this was the first place we went, we hadn't yet realized that the prices in London are the same as they are in the US, but with the exchange rate right now, everything becomes more than two times as expensive.
Also, Cous Cous was our first Moroccan food experience. Because of this, we decided to go for the sampler choices. We were served the Moroccan version of hummus, an eggplant puree, a puree of peppers and cheese, and little pastries stuffed with shrimp. Everything was excellent, especially the Moroccan bread that was served. My favorite of the samples was definitely the pepper puree. It was so good, very sweet, but still a little tangy and spicy. But the one thing that is a definite try is the mint tea. Have a pot or two of the best tea that I think I've ever had.
I would recommend Cous Cous in the South Kensington neighborhood of London. I can't wait to try more Moroccan food.
