Mozaic Café & Delicatessen Ashton under Lyne
The arrival of Café Mozaic in Ashton under Lyne gives the people of Ashton the chance to experience authentic Moroccan cuisine in their home town.
Having recently visited Café Mozaic I can say I was impressed with the food on offer and the service offered by the staff. The atmosphere in Mozaic could be described as informal and friendly. If you are new to Moroccan cuisine the proprietor will happily talk you through the dishes on offer. While the menu does contain some wonderful culinary treats I was disappointed to see no bastela on offer.
All meat served at Mozaic is halal, which for well documented reasons prevents me from sampling any of the meat dishes but I must say the poached salmon with dill mayo is particularly good. A colleague opted for the Chefs Daily Special which comes as a complete meal and is usually accompanied by the highly recommended brown rice with cashew nuts.
All in all the arrival of Mozaic in Ashton adds a touch of spice to the culinary delights available to the discerning shopper and office worker. Some of the dishes are extremely spicy and I doubt any could be described as bland, but do be careful if planning an intimate date after eating at Mozaic as the spicy food can give you a bad case of fire breath for several hours after eating.
It is also worth adding that Tameside’s own version of royalty, yes, the one we all owe everything to - the Supreme Leader, the true living legend, the Executive Leader himself - Kieran Quinn is said to be an occasional customer of Mozaic so when you hear the local monied aristocracy eat there it must be worth a visit.
