Food Porn Friday | Tagine | Beverly Hills

Friday, March 23, 2012


Tagine is one of those Beverly Hills institutions where everyone wants a table but it usually takes weeks to even confirm a reservation. I’ve been DYING to try this spot out since it’s literally right around the corner from where the bf works and super convenient to drop right in for an impromptu date night. We were finally able to check it out last week with some awesome company (thx for making it out MK!) and couldn’t have been more pleased with this refined Moroccan feast. Here’s what’s on the menu:

Complimentary veggie soup with Moroccan cigar (above): Pureed perfection! Creamy and light with a crunch of texture...the rosemary is heavenly especially when you get a whiff right before diving in.


Marinated spicy olives, berbere bread, and homemade hummus.


Bastilla: A light of phyllo with cornish hen and scrambled eggs, sprinkled with saffron and powdered sugar...sweet and savory, a surprise element of saffron hits just the right notes to balance this otherwise sweet appetizer. One of their most popular dishes, a DEF must try!


Black tiger shrimp marinated in preserved lemon, served with turnips, finished with lemon sauce. I'm not a fan of shrimp (unless they're raw) but this was charred to a nice crisp. Crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside. I give it a solid A.


Roasted pan stripe Sea Bass marinated in a Charmoula sauce, served with mushrooms and lentils. Sorry for the blurry pic y'all, it was super dark in the space so this is the best I could come up with. The sea bass was light and crisp, except that the heavy handed lentils weighed the dish down exponentially. I'd like to see this with maybe a lentil salad for a bit of heft, instead of the king-sized bed it was served on. 


Colonial couscous served with lamp chops, quefta, lamb and chicken, on top of mixed veggies. My dish for the night and my FAVE by far. What I imagine local Moroccan peeps would eat for dinnertime. Love how authentic the entire plate feels with curried bits and jam-packed mediterranean spices. Totally craveable, a MUST order if you're in the hood.

(Not pictured but another MUST: Lamb honey sauce tagine: the boy's dish but it was super dark in there so I couldn't get a clear shot. Sweet and savory, super tender, falls off the bone kind of lamb...order this and pair it with the couscous above= PERFECTION!)


Finishing off with a bit of dessert: Molten Chocolate soup with vanilla bean ice cream and berried baklava: So scrumptious! Like a light chocolate syrup served atop a nutty milkshake...DEF hits the spot after a super savory meal. I'd replicate this at home for Girl's Night In!

*Insider's tip: Located on the famed Robertson Blvd, aka paparazzi central, on any given day (especially midweek) you can run into celebrities shopping down the street. Spend an afternoon at Kitson and hop into the parade of design shops and end your night at Tagine. Sounds like a pretty awesome plan to me!*

Thanks for reading!
Wishing y'all a splendid weekend! 

Bon Appétit mes amis!
