I’ve been so keen to try Moroccan Deli-Cacy on Lygon St, a new business by the owner of the wonderful Moroccan Soup Kitchen in North Fitzroy, which I’ve been to more times than I can count. At the end of the Saturday lunch rush I arrived with a friend and we prevaricated whether to wait or try another time but after a couple of minutes a couple left and we pounced on an outside table.
It’s similar to the Moroccan Soup Bar in that there’s no menu and not much in the way of choice for lunch – there are mezze plates for $15. It’s all vegetarian and presumably the vegan version doesn’t have haloumi.
There’s cous-cous, brown lentils, a felafel, pearl cous-cous, foul, cauliflower, roasted sweet potato, cabbage salad, pickled turnip, labne, spinach, bread, haloumi and quinoa. It’s already been reviewed by Green Gourmet Giraffe and Where’s the beef. I’ll be back soon to try the breakfasts. It may take some attempts to get in depending on when you try as this place is going to be busy.
