4027 W Irving Park
Chicago, IL


A restaurant that’s within spitting distance of an expressway off-ramp has no business being as homey and authentic as this North African gem, where warm servers and impossibly fluffy couscous come standard and the hum of happy diners drowns out any road noise. Make room on your table for one of the bountiful tagines—such as the tender lamb Fez stewed with cinnamon and prunes—and the piquant housemade merguez sausage. Finish with a just-sweet-enough slice of coconut-mango mousse cake and a very necessary cup (or two) of delicate mint tea. Cash only.
