Dada is an authentic Moroccan restaurant at 45 William street. Spacious rooms are designed in traditional dark red and gold colours. Its been almost 10 years since Dada opened their doors for Dublin foodies.
Moroccan warmth in Dublin
When we arrived there on a Saturday evening without pre-booking, friendly staff found for us a small lovely table. The restaurant turned out to be pretty popular among Dubliners; we were surrounded by couples, friends and families. Positive atmosphere, cosy sofas with pillows and soft light made us feel like we were somewhere in Morocco.
Delicious cous-cous and tagine
The menu offers an assembly of cous-cous dishes and meat tagines. As an appetiser I ordered a soup with lentils, chickpeas, vermicelli and coriander for the reasonable €5. The soup was affordably spicy with a rich taste. For the main dish I chose a chicken fillet tagine with caramelized onions, turmeric, raisin & cardamom for €17. From the first view it might seem overpriced but the size of the dish will compensate your expenses. The dish is so big that it can fill up 2 people. The chicken was very soft and saucy and perfectly accorded with spices. My friend ordered a cous-cous with a chicken breast, coriander & ginger marinated vegetables and found it incredibly tasty. Also, Dada’s menu has a number of vegetarian salads and tagines.
The restaurant can be suitable for a date as well as for a family dinner. A small but valuable tip from us: you are allowed to bring your own alcohol.
Have a look at the locale, since the roads to get there is a bit tricky.
