SquareMeal Review of
You’ll feel a world away from the mean streets of Crouch End once inside this little slice of Morocco in N8. Low-slung furniture, North African curios, gold tables, mirrors & the occasional
bout of belly dancing make Bouga an experience that hovers somewhere between the authentic & the gimmicky. Traditional food flies out of the open kitchen at the back of the place, so expect
steaming ‘seven vegetable’ couscous, bowls of lamb, prune & almond tagine, & much more besides; starters bring on courgette fritters, duck brochette & suchlike, while desserts span
everything from baklava to Bakewell tart. Much is made of the therapeutic qualities of the ingredients, but if the spices don’t work, you can always flag down one of the cheery, affable staff &
see if you get more luck from a sultry cocktail or Casablanca beer. Sunday lunch is an Anglo-Moroccan blow out.
