Tangier's in Canton

Monday night in Baltimore is not known as a particularly hot time, but we returned to the spot formerly known as Red Fish, and more recently Meridian 54 for an anniversary celebration. Tangier's serves Moroccan mezze courses in a modern style. I had beet salad- lovely presentation and dressed perfectly. Hubby had item similar to meat-stuffed egg roll- very spicy filling. For second course we had meatballs, peas & celery- peas were surprisingly salty- and the most flavorful part of the dish. Hubby had sausage with very spicy dipping sauce. We shared the dessert sampler and they treated us to a drink on the house. Exotic food in a relaxed atmosphere. It was lovely. I recommend you get over there and try it.

    good to hear. Tangier's menu does look good. Meridian 54 was such a spectacular failure that i've been afraid to go to a restaurant anywhere near that corner again, even though it's just a few blocks from my house.

      The great thing about celebrating your anniversary there is that you can do it each year and each year go to a different restaurant. :)

        We had dinner at Tangiers last night and loved it. We started with the beet salad with parsley, and then had a mix, meze style. The couscous special was delicious, served in a tangine with squash, chickpeas, eggplant, and lots of other tasty items--hopefully they'll add it permanently to the menu. The triangle parmentiers were delicious. Everything was fresh tasting, with interesting combinations of flavors. We also had a fried fish with dip, which was delicious. We topped it off with an assortment of moroccan desserts. One had rosewater and almond, one was coconut and one was like a chocolate truffle. The owner's aunt makes them and they are awesome and the selection changes every night, according to our lovely server. We'll be back!
