Great Deals at Cafe Morocco


Hey, I got a great tip from one of our Facebook friends last week: Cafe Morocco is offering a special prix fixe menu Mondays and Tuesdays from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. For $20, you get an appetizer, two entrées and a dessert. Yummers! Entrée choices include CM’s Chicken Sumac—chicken breast pieces marinated overnight in garlic, lemon and sumac (a tangy spice), and sautéed with onions and tomatoes—a personal fav of mine. The dish is served with hummus, and it’s divine!
Monday–Friday lunchers can also get in on a special deal. For $4.95, you get your choice of a gyro or falafel sandwich. Both come with your choice of soup or salad.
Or, ignore the specials and just order whatever looks good to you. Perhaps the Hal’s Salad, pictured; it was a Sac Mag editors’ dining pick a few years ago.
Decisions are tough, but at those prices you can come by every week to try something new. And guess what? I was just told that there will be a Groupon coming out on July 14. The deals are just getting better and better.
Cafe Morocco is located 1221 Alhambra Blvd., Sacramento; (916) 731-4637.
