Being from Portugal, I don't have a lot of choices available in San Diego where I can get food with the flavors I am used to. One of the most similar cuisines I can find is the Moroccan cuisine. Both cuisines share a lot of the same flavors and ingredients, being that the Moors once occupied most of the territory that is now Portugal and our culture was immensely influenced by this beautiful culture. One day, while craving something that reminds me of home and with a little internet research, I found Kous Kous. I remember being very excited about it and this dining experience was everything I imagined. At arrival, I introduced myself to the owner who is absolutely charming. The ambiance was amazing. Nothing over the top as sometimes you see in certain Moroccan restaurants. Just beautifully and tastefully decorated while keeping with the Moroccan traditional style. The food was wonderful. I particularly love the Full Sampler in the Tapas & Sides section. It is served with Pita and is a treat for your taste buds. You also get a small plate with the best seasoned olives you've ever tasted has a complimentary appetizer to start your meal with. We have now gone a couple of times and have tried most of their Tagines which are wonderful. My husband and I also like the Merguez, grilled spiced beef and lamb sausage. Both times we have ended our meal with the Orange Blossom Berry Plate which makes for the most delightfully way to end your meal. Believe me, this is more than just a fruit plate. The slices of fruit are infused with a lightly sweet and delicate syrup and sprinkled with cinnamon. Now, the one thing I want to recommend is the mint tea. Drinking mint tea is one of Morocco's best kept traditions, and I have to say that the one they serve is so delicious that that's what I crave the most. I order it immediately and have several refills throughout the meal. I love this place! It's a beautiful place to go for any occasion.
Pros: The whole experience.
Cons: No cons.
