Adelaide has a rich Muslim heritage and is home to the oldest mosque in the Southern Hemisphere, built in 1888. Diners seeking halal food therefore won’t be disappointed with the number of authentic choices available in South Australia. From the classy dining surrounds at Marrakech Morroccan, to the casual, unassuming context of Lawash Bakery and Kebab Shop, the experience may vary but one thing remains the same: the quality of food and genuine halal certification is assured.
There’s one thing that Marrakech Moroccan isn’t short on, and that’s personality. There’s distinctive North African tapestries, stained glass lighting and Arabic music in this small, dimly lit room, but the mood is amped up by the ebullient chef and owner, who warmly greets his guests as they arrive. Start with some filled Moroccan bread before moving onto the generously portioned tagines – lamb, chicken and beef. Try the Tanjia Marrakchia if you’re after a little extra kick.
