MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

This self-described “Moroccan-Baja kitchen” might sound unusual, but it’s full of bold, enticing flavors. Inspired by both her local environs and family heritage, Chef Alia Jaziri turn outs a fascinating fast-casual menu. Delicacies include Moroccan-spiced chicken tacos dressed with preserved lemon and tzatziki-inspired crema, or couscous bowls layered with merguez, black beans, queso fresco and toasted pepitas. For those less inclined to fusion fare, the shakshuka (poached eggs in a spicy North African tomato sauce) is a faithful rendition.

Though simple, this space has a coastal feel from skylights, a roll-up door, and relaxing color scheme of white, cyan and teal. Linger in the calm with a serving of baklava and rosewater-topped Greek fro-yo.
