"If you thought Moroccan food was all about couscous," ABC7's Hungry Hound says, "think again." He's found a family-run restaurant in the old Irving Park neighborhood where the menu includes a lot more than those tiny grains.
The vegetables and spices are among the most important components to the meal.
Sure, there's some drama to Moroccan cuisine: the unveiling of the conical, clay tagines.. the aggressive steaming of the miniscule couscous. But the real draw is the seasoning. From spicy harissa to tart preserved lemons, it's a cuisine with an enormous depth of flavor. At Shokran, all of the delicious recipes are prepared as if they were being served to family.
