An Oasis of Flavors

By the same people who introduced the restaurants Arabia and Kim Bu Mbu comes Al-Jaima, “Cocina del Desierto.” It recreates the atmosphere of a traditional Arabic teahouse with its wall furnishings, candles and patterned lanterns, and scents of incense and mint tea. The most popular dining venue here involves lounging on floor cushions rather than a table. The tasting menu (16 euros) promises a festival of bright Moroccan flavors, such as the salad of eggplant, roasted red peppers, and tomatoes; a rich hummus made from cream of chickpeas and sesame sauce; and chicken tagine with candied dates and honey. Be sure to try one of their fresh-baked desserts, like the pastel chicken, a sticky, salty-sweet pastry with icing sugar and almonds.
