Ta-Zin Moroccan Restaurant


Ta-Zin (427 Jefferson Ave, 305.531.8900) officially opens today. It's a North African restaurant heavy on the belly dancers and whirling dervishes. But thankfully, the food is actually pretty good. We sampled a 5-course menu that included a Moroccan bean soup called Bessara (it perked up nicely with a squeeze of lemon), a platter of meze that included spicy carrot salad, humus, baba and marinated peppers, a chicken pastilla (phyllo-wrapped shredded chicken topped with almonds and a dusting of sugar), and the main course (below), was three different stews including a lemon chicken with artichokes, meatballs in tomato sauce, lamb with apricots and prunes and a massive tagine of couscous topped with zuchini and pumpkin. And for dessert, almond cookies and sweet mint tea.

This looks like a great spot. It's definitely on my "restaurants to try" list. I'm a big fan of North African food and have been making tagines for years. I even make my own preserved lemon out of lemons from a Meyer lemon tree in the backyard.

I enjoyed my experience at Ta-zin and I will definitely be visiting again! It was such a pleasing combination of Moroccan style with a South Beach twist, an incredible atmosphere, and delicious food. I feel like it is the only place that has enjoyable adult entertainment, and I would recomend it to anyone looking for good food and a great time!

I enjoyed the entertainment - the food was not all that great. Wont try it again. The service was not all that great. We waited about 45min for appetizzers only, so imagine the food!

The bill was pretty up there in the six hundreds.....

Wont do it again, but you should atleast try it once in your life time.
