Easily recognisable by the Moroccan flag proudly flying outside, this restaurant serves up a variety of North African dishes, with a focus on Moroccan home cooking and Tunisian cuisine. There are plenty of bold flavours to choose from, including the harira soup (with vegetables and beans – usually chickpeas and/or lentils), the classic tajine, and lamb hamburgers, but we particularly liked the brik, a börek-esque combination of eggs and spicy mashed potato rolled into thin pastry skin, the crispy texture of which left us wanting more. With the cut of a knife, pure yolk porn oozes out onto your plate; the mood is only enhanced by pairing it with a lightly bitter and fruity Casablanca Beer. Although you might be lucky and be able to nab a table by walking in, note that Tam Tam generally works on a reservations-only basis.
