Moroccan cuisine can be hard to come by in Taipei. Thankfully for those craving kofta, Tajin is now open nearby Taipei's Tonghua market. Tajin is open everyday for lunch and dinner, but be advised that they close at 9PM so it's best get their early if you're after a Moroccan evening meal.
Tajin is in fact owned by Moroccans, so the cuisine is as authentic as it comes. Everything is made to order and is quite affordable, averaging $500 per person, or less. Tajin is an intimate space, with a simple menu. This Moroccan food Mecca specialises in its namesake dish - Tajine. The food on offer here is a short selection tajine dishes, some paninis and rice-based dishes (we are in Taiwan after all). Like all things Moroccan Tajine is exquisitely seasoned. It is essentially a stew, usually prepared in a ceramic pot. The stew is prepared at simmering heat, making the meat slow-cooked in stew broth, remarkably tender.
One of Tajin's most recommended dishes is the beef with plum tajine. Infused with saffron, turmeric, ginger and cumin, this tajin generally wins over any customer. Those trying to spare pennies will find that Tajin's set menus offer delicious Moroccan meals at great value. The set menu consists of tajine with an aromatic Moroccan soup, rice pudding and fresh mint tea.
For those in search of Halaal meats, you'll be pleased to know that all food served at Tajin meets Halaal standards.
