¿No tienes tiempo ni dinero para viajar a Marruecos? Pues coge el metro y plántate en este renovado restaurante del madrileño barrio de Chueca, donde ofrecen cocina bereber, con el cuscús y las carnes como principal reclamo de una carta que elaboran cocineros autóctonos.

En este pequeño, sencillo y sobrio local cuyo nombre recuerda cómo se decía cuscús en castellano antiguo, podrás probar ensaladas como la marroquí (lleva pimiento, tomate y ajo) y la del Atlas (se hace con berenjena, tomate y pimiento), sopas y cremas (harira, chorba, hummus, baba ganoush…), pescados (destacan el tajín rifeño, con boquerones, y el tangerino, con congrio, pasas y cebolla), carnes (ternera con dátiles y miel, todo tipo de pinchos morunos a la brasa, las salchichas morunas merguez…) y especialidades como la bastela (hojaldre relleno de ave) y los alcuzcuz de cordero, de ternera, de pollo o vegetal. ¿Y los postres? Sin duda, sus dulces típicos y caseros son una tentación. Dado que ‘estás’ en Marruecos, hay que aprovechar la ocasión para catar vinos del país que cuestan mucho de encontrar en España. Lo mismo ocurre con su selección de tés morunos.

INSIDER tip

Alcuzcuz de Alhuzema es uno de los decanos de la gastronomía marroquí en la capital española: abrió como Al-Hoceima en 1989.

    The cuisine was good although a bit expensive. Service was great but the mood was a bit off. We were the only customers in the restaurant

    Not really Moroccan experience. Quite empty. Expensive vines, small starters, second dishes are not bad.

    Muy buena comida, nos encantó a toda la familia, niños y adultos. El servicio amable pero escaso. Tardaron al principio en atendernos bastante, una vez que comenzamos todo fue rodado. Repetiremos.

    I enjoyed the food. It was good basic Moroccan. Nothing to sing about, but well executed and flavoursome. Nice olives. I thought table service was a little slow and distracted, but that is not unusual in Madrid!
