Moro is one of those restaurants that seems to have been around forever (opened its doors in 1997) and is loved by so many Londoners. Islington / Clerkenwell is fast becoming a go-to place on the foodie culinary map, but Moro was an Islington based destination-restaurant before the likes of John Salt and Naamyaa Cafe decided to grace the area with their presence...

I can't say enough good things about Moro: The cookbooks! The lunch-time stall on Exmouth Market! Sister restaurant Morito! And then there's the place itself. With a monthly-changing menu of delicious Moorish cuisine (think charcoal grilled fish and meat dishes, paired with classic Mediterranean ingredients - chickpeas, aubergine, pomegranate and garlic all feature heavily), Moro is hands-down one of the best restaurants in North London. I visited with my mum and brother last week and was once again impressed with just how good the food there is - beautiful ingredients, perfect preparation and fantastic flavour combinations...

Thursday night I went for the first time at Moro, I was invited by my lovely flatmate for a very late birthday celebration (my birthday was in March). She wanted to do something special, and go somewhere I had never been before. After a few months of research, we ended up next to our house, in Exmouth Market in the famous Spanish/North African restaurant Moro. She discovered I had never been there, despite the fact I have been to their sister restaurant: Morito many times. JACKPOT, she found the prefect place to go.As soon as we arrived we were offered some bread and olive oil. We had a look at the menu...

For anyone who has been living on another food planet, this is the brainchild of Sam and Sam Clark. A thousand years ago they worked for the River Café and you can see the same aesthetic here – top quality ingredients, not messed about with too much. As they say on their website, they set out to discover the abundant flavours of the southern Mediterranean and travelled through Spain, Morocco and the Sahara for three months. That this has been going strong since 1997 and hasn’t changed particularly since then speaks volumes. This is a confident restaurant. It knows its audience and it does its job spectacularly well....

Moro seems to have been one of East London’s ‘go-to’ restaurant references for as long as we can remember. Famous for its fusion of Spanish / Middle-Eastern cuisine, bookings at this ever popular spot are an absolute essential for the dinner service. Part of its ongoing success must certainly lie in its atmosphere. With a long bar and cosy wood tables scattered about, the large room is an invitation to conviviality.Regarding the food, the menu offers a great selection that changes with the seasons. As a starter, the warm peppers stuffed with salt cod brandada is very pleasant, while the mixed vegetable mezze...

Moro is located in Exmouth Market, a really cool little pedestrianised street a short walk from Angel tube station. Specialising in Moorish/Spanish cuisine, it celebrates its 17thbirthday this year, which in restaurant years is an absolute lifetime, but that just tells you how special this place is! TBH booked a late lunch table and when we arrived at 2pm, every table was occupied and the place was buzzing with the sound of people having a good time. I loved it as soon as I walked in. There is a long bar spanning the breadth of the restaurant where you can sit and have tapas and an open kitchen at the back. Next...
