If you have ever made couscous from a box of dried semolina, eat at this modest, family-run restaurant with soccer matches on the TV to see what the dish is really like. Try to visit on the weekend when the mother of the clan hand-rolls her own couscous and simmers delicious chicken or lamb tagines to accompany it. On weekdays you’ll have to settle for beef or chicken kebab plates accompanied by a pilaf of rice studded with vegetables, raisins, and almonds. By your second visit, the proprietors might hug you like family.
