Little Morocco Café opened in late December at 294 North Winooski Avenue in Burlington. Specializing in traditional Moroccan meals such as tagines, couscous dishes and kebabs, the café serves lunch and dinner seven days a week. Lamb-shank tagine is a spiced and marinated slab of meat topped with toasted almonds and served with stewed prunes, apricots and boiled eggs.
Saffron rice comes dressed with pine nuts and raisins. Sweet, rich mint tea is a fine accompaniment to appetizers including hummus and shakshouka, a roasted-pepper-and-tomato spread that comes with pita.
