From Casablanca With Love: Food Truck

By Aiman Azri

From Casablanca With Love is a fresh-faced food truck that promises a hot-blooded Moroccan affair; some customers might indeed fall in lust with the Grilled Lamb Couscous (RM 15), spotlighting meat that's loose on the bone, its mild-mannered flavour enlivened by the garlicky-tangy dynamics of truck founder Nik's secret sauce.

Nik, a former professional caterer, believes that Moroccan-inspired cooking is a match for Malaysian palates, courtesy of several relatively familiar-tasting types of spices, mixed in ways that might nonetheless convey a subtly different experience. 

For crowd-pleasing street fare, the Beef Kefta Moroccan Kebab Wrap proves a meaty little parcel of happiness, featuring ground beef in flatbread, saturated again with Nik's signature sauce (RM 7).

There's a Malaysian speciality here that should be worth sampling too: The Nasi Kerabu Tumis comes with turmeric-tinged yellow rice coupled with a freshly chopped local salad, completed with ayam bakar, sambal tumis, keropok and telur masin, striving to do justice to the traditional stalls of Kelantan (RM 7).

From Casablanca With Love is typically at Taman Tun Dr Ismail on most nights, but text Nik first at 011-3231-1605 to check.

  1. We had a Moroccan rice stall here before, very nice but they increased the rent so the African guy decided to call it quits. So sad.
