We start with a delicious ‘full table’ tasting with an assortment of vegetarian mezze. Lots of vegetables, such as artichoke with confit lemon, filo pastry with feta, lemsem and many more savoury treats. Also, there was the delicious home-made hallouk, including the Arab delicacy with grilled peppers and eggplant caviar.

He delivers second choice vegetables in Hasselt, which are not perfect in shape but still good to eat. Tajine serves no alcohol, and you can drink alcohol-free wine and Moroccan tea from those beautiful teapots.
