A taste of Morocco

By Sorrel Moseley-Williams

The latest gastro pub to hit Palermo dips into North Africa for its flavour inspiration. Tetuán Brasero Marroquí comes from the team behind Palermo’s Benaim, so there’s an air of familiarity thanks to the range of craft beers on tap, a vast outdoor stencil and ceiling-hung artwork by street artist Cabaio Spirito and a short street-food menu.

A curious yet beguiling Tetris-style layout has punters climbing up and down over large wooden blocks; you can also pull up a bench at a communal table if you suffer from vertigo. Order cocktails or a pint from the front bar, head to the back, checking out the rotisserie, to line up some Moroccan flavours. Keep an eye on the screen for your number to be called.

Start off with hummus and fainá (the pita is rather too doughy and thick) or the babaganoush (80 pesos) to share. Both sport decent authentic flavours although they are a little liquid and light on texture. As for mains, opt for the chicken sandwich, a tasty abundant number marinated in cumin, parsley, coriander and sweet chili and dressed with a pomegranate, cinnamon, lemon juice and cucumber salad and served with chunky chips; the rib-eye sandwich, however, is less exciting.

Stop by after work for happy hour, 120 generous minutes between 6pm and 8pm, with pints priced at 55 pesos rather than the usual 85 pesos and sip with the cool kids. The music’s pretty pumping; this is a spot for making merry rather than deep and meaningful conversations.
