Goat-Cheese Croquets, Moroccan Wine, and Music at El Morocco Club
Across from La Maison Blanche sits Tangier’s best restaurant. Modern, stylish, and always lively, El Morocco Club offers sophisticated takes on traditional dishes. About half the menu is designed by Morocco’s most celebrated contemporary chef, the Paul Bucose–trained Meryem Cherkaoui. Try the goat-cheese croquets with candied pears or the red sea bream on a bed of Jerusalem artichoke cream and porcini mushrooms. First, though, have a plate of oysters raised in the crystalline waters off the southern Sahara and a glass of Moroccan wine in the downstairs piano bar. Or end the night there with cocktails and music. Rue Kachla 1, Place du Tabor, Kasbah, 212(0) 539-948-139

Khaw-Soi Mrs. Sriphan: Tiny Thai Restaurant, Big Flavor
If you can get beyond perching on a tiny plastic stool at this mess of a restaurant—raw aluminum roof, piles of dirty plates, and an ancient radio—you’ll eat well here. The broth has just a little coconut cream and is spicier and more sour than most. 39 Thanon Koh Klang, 66/(0) 53-140-339 Photo by Ériver Hijano This appeared in the August/September 2015 issue.

Khao Soi Lam Duan: Busy, Fast, Tasty Thai
The owners claim that this 70-plus-year-old restaurant burns through 60 pounds of noodles a day. The khao soi is indeed that good. Richer than most, the broth is particularly full-flavored thanks to a generous amount of curry paste. It’s so good, in fact, that Lam Duan opened a second outpost in khao soi–deprived Bangkok. 352/22 Charoen Rat Rd., 66/(0) 53-243-519 Photo by Ériver Hijano This appeared in the August/September 2015 issue.

Khao Soi Islam: Best Burmese-Style Khao Soi, Says Chef Andy Ricker
Located in a deeply Muslim neighborhood, this shop traffics in Thai-Muslim food, including goat biryani and a khao soi that’s heavy on dried spices and topped with a Burmese-style pickled green. According to some, this khao soi most closely resembles its Burmese counterpart. 22-24 Thanon Charoenprathet, Soi 1, 66/(0) 53-271-484 Photo by Ériver Hijano This appeared in the August/September 2015 issue.
