Let me start of by saying I am not a vegetarian by a long shot, but I do have a few vego friends so have sampled many-a good vego restaurant. Moroccan Soup Bar would probably now be at the top of that list – vego and vegan friendly. No meat? Who cares. IT. WAS. SO. GOOD.
This review may not be helpful to a lot of people and I apologise for that. The food came out quickly and those around me tucked in even faster. On top of that, we ordered the $25 Banquet menu and I have no idea what I was eating, but despite that, my foray into the unknown was a great experience. I do have a few tips however, which may help a few people who try this great place out.
1. Book ahead, it gets busy and they do need tables so move you out quite quickly
2. Bring your own take away boxes, there will be a lot of food left over and they encourage you to save it for later (but do not provide boxes)
3. Go in with an open mind, meat heads! You don’t even notice there isn’t any meat, due to the onslaught of flavours from every dish.
On to my weak dish descriptions: I believe there was some sort of chickpea dish, with crunchy-somethings on top which was a favourite amongst us all. There are also quite a few nicely spiced dishes which perk the tastebuds up. There are beetroot dishes, potato dishes, rice dishes and the dessert is really nice too (you get a nice sample plate to share. The complimentary peppermint tea or traditional Moroccan coffee you are served at the end of the night rounds the meal off. Love it. I will try to return to shoot individual photos of each dish (and hopefully a better description too!)
TL; DR Best vegetarian restaurant I have eaten at.
