Casablanca Moroccan Cafe (Omaha)

I’m guessing most people don’t even know the Casablanca Moroccan Cafe is open for foot traffic, because there was a sign up for what seemed like years that it was catering only, or maybe that was some other outfit entirely. But I stopped in with the intent to try the falafel over lunch and was upsold to a lamb and rice dish and was given a small plate of hummus and pita bread while I waited.

Some hummus.

The pita bread was very fresh and the hummus also had a fresh and clean taste. I can easily recommend it.

And then out came a huge amount of food.

Enough food for Rick and Ilsa?

This was way too much food for me, especially just lunch. There might’ve been two cups of rice. The rice was cooked just right, but it was filled with different dried fruits, like dates and golden raisins, and I’ve never been a fan of sweetness in main dishes. But it’s easy enough to avoid eating them.

The grilled vegetables were cooked right, with not too much oil and just a little charring. And the lamb chunks were tender, although could’ve been served in smaller pieces to make them easier to eat.

I think the lamb and rice might be the perfect item for Half the Food at Half the Price (HtFaHtP).
