Marrakech Moroccan Las Vegas

As soon as I walked into Marrakech Moroccan restaurant we were greeted by the owner Tariq and the environment and mood made me feel alive! The belly dancer was working her way through the tables of patrons, the music was captivating and I was ready to eat, enjoy the show and dance!

We had the Prix Fixe 6 course menu. Every dish was tasty! Loved the shrimp with lemon/garlic sauce, beef & chicken was so moist and dessert was divine!

Just when I thought I couldn’t eat anymore the next dish would come out. I ate EVERY last bite. It was too good to pass up! I didn’t care how full I was…and that’s where the belly dancing came in!!!!

Boa Steakhouse Santa Monica

This is our special place! Its great for date night, great for friends and family visiting, especially the Santa Monica location! The one thing this Boa has that the other ones don’t have is cotton candy! (Yes you read it right….COTTON CANDY!!!!) No matter what you order you will never be disappointed, from the regular menu to the specials!!! Something you must try while at BOA is Goat Cheese Baklava. Just imagine that combo and then when you try it, it will blow your mind! I have never had anything like it before. Sunday half off bottles of wine. BONUS! Oh don’t forget to try the Truffle Parmesan Cauliflower and when in season another must have are the brussel sprouts. I could give more, but lets just start there for now!
