The chicken like all the other meats served was so tender it was falling off the bone. All the meats were developed with flavors but the chicken stood out the most to us on our visit.

It’s the flavorful braised chicken baked in puff pastry topped with cinnamon and powdered sugar. It’s a little odd to me but is more savory than sweet. I do like the textures to it.

And a Plate of Moroccan Desserts.
