Moroccan food is full of aphrodisiacs and we have selected three of our favourite secretly romantic dishes to indulge in with your partner – anytime. Strap in and prepare to learn about three spices that turn our dishes from a delicious dinner into a romantic experience.
The scent of cinnamon has a long tradition and ancient lore of being used as an aphrodisiac. In the Bible it was used alongside myrrh and aloe to “perfume beds” for lovers and the Queen of Sheba used cinnamon to seduce King Solomon. In more recent times, cinnamon has been proven by neurologists and scientists as having an arousing effect on men.
If you want to join Queen Sheba and seduce your very own King Solomon – come and try our Cinnamon Sweet Potato tagine – a delicious vegetarian dish bursting with flavour. Order this aromatic dish on the side of your main to add a little love to your evening.
Cardamom is originally an indigenous South Indian and Sri Lankan aromatic spice belonging to the ginger family – yet it makes appearances in many cultures history all around the world. Mystics would use cardamom to cast love spells, the Ancient Greeks recognised its uses as an aphrodisiac by concocting love potions, and even in the animal kingdom – males of several species are titillated simply by the scent. While we can’t sell you a guaranteed love potion – we do have our own way of getting spicy.
Our exquisite lamb tagine is an explosive cardibomb of romantic fragrances. Bite into an aromatic succulent lamb as a main dish with our modern take on this traditional Moroccan recipe and indulge in a jungle of arousing and aromatic aphrodisiacs.
Well, maybe we do sell love potions after all…
Ginger is a historically renowned aphrodisiac. It is so potent that it is still used in India as a cure for impotency. Its invigorating scent, sharp flavour and medicinal qualities make it the perfect candidate for romantic evening’s dinner.
If you want to indulge in the Aphrodite of aphrodisiacs, then head down to Zayane and enjoy a King Prawn Briwat. Bite into the crispy exterior to be met with succulent prawns seasoned in Moroccan spices and enjoy a balance of sweet and sour tastes in your mouth.
