The Eat and Be Merry Crew convened at the Moroccan Soup Bar for dinner a little (i.e., long!) while ago. With 12 or so of us, we were able to make a booking for a table and didn't have to join the queue of hungry diners and line up for a table.
I've known about the Moroccan Soup Bar for the longest time now... I know it's an institution and it's famed for its soups and vegetarian menu. But unlike some of the Crew, I've had never gotten around to trying it - it's a local eatery for Foghorn Leghorn, Big Fil has been there before, and it brings back memories of her roaring 20s for Obelix.
There's lots of photos for this review but the review itself will be rather short. Namely, because none of us really had a clue as to what we were eating as this was a "spoken menu" (i.e., whatever dishes they had prepared for the day). Further, the rules of dining here are rather strict... (the Seinfeld character of "the Soup Nazi" was mentioned more than once). There's basically three options for dinner: set menu A, set menu B or soup. You can't mix or match the options; and as far as we can tell, the only difference between the two set menus is that you got may be one or two extra dishes for set menu B. We chose set menu A, or rather, we were told by the staff that they will serve us set menu A.
So, without further ado, here are some colourful pics of various vegetarian dishes.
This was a selection of dips, pickled veg and flat bread...
