NOMAD - A Moroccan Restaurant in the East Village

Do not be confused!  I just blogged about The Nomad in the Nomad Hotel located in the Flat Iron district - 29th Street and Broadway.

This restaurant is located in the East Village on Second Avenue between 5th and 6th Streets.

It is a casual place and a trendy Moroccan decor, affordable prices, with good portions.  They actually claim to be a South African restaurant.

One of our appetizers was Tabouleh.  This one had grains in it - maybe because it's Moroccan style rather than the general Middle Eastern version we are accustomed with.

The special Moroccan stew with prunes and nuts was tender and flavorful.  If you don't like prunes, you can request for them to remove it.

You know me, I'm always curious to try other dishes that I've never had.  So, I chose this chicken cooked in filo-type dough sprinkled with some powdered sugar and cinnamon.  It's alright but there were other dishes that I tried at the table.

The mini crab cakes and shrimp as appetizer could be one's main course.
