Steve Borsuk Belly dancer raises howls of delight during opening of Moroccan dining place.
I’ve been to Morocco more than five times. I’ve been to Tangiers, Casablanca, Fez, Marrakesh, and the beach of Agadir, and I’ve truly fallen in love with the culture, the exotic palaces, the ruins of yesteryears, the people and the incredibly delicious food.
So it’s great to know that Morocco has somehow landed in our shores through Kasbah, which offers exceptionally excellent Moroccan dishes. The resto, which originally opened in Boracay beside Discovery Shores, has now extended its presence to Manila. It has opened a branch at the Fort Strip.
This restaurant and bar famous for adding exotic luxury to the Boracay dining scene, now showcases the best of Morocco’s flavors and vibrant culture, dahlings, in its “souk-inspired” two-level Taguig City location.
Madonna English is managing director and truly the Queen of the Kasbah. She welcomed the 200 or so invitees to the elbow-to-elbow affair. She had designed the interiors with her debonair husband Martin English and designer Robin da Roza.
Their attention to detail was evident in every corner, as they really captured the North African style through plush cushions and vibrant colors. The décor is great for savoring the unique flavors of Moroccan cuisine, palanggas.
A lavish buffet dinner spread was prepared by executive chef Fadi Zaidan. It included awesome favorites such as Tabbouleh, Tangier Calamares, Moroccan Cigars spring rolls, the wow Lamb Tagine, Seafood Tagine, three different flavored Couscous, and loads of mezze.
For desserts, there were luscious Baklava and the to-die-for Panna Cotta, all drowned by the superb Don Papa rum, made from our very own Negros sugar, no less, and Moët & Chandon Hennessy VS, natch!
