Craving For Moroccan Cuisine In Singapore? Visit Zarabi!

Morocco is a unique North African country bordering the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Unique because of the combined influence of Arabic, Berber and European cultures. These influences are clearly visible in Moroccan cuisine as well.

We were curious to taste Moroccan cuisine but is it available in Singapore? Yes, it is! Visited Zarabi on 48 Kandahar St. to fulfil our cravings for Moroccan food. Did we like what we eat? Read on!


I would say that Zarabi has decent ambiance. It’s not a fine dining restaurant but it’s clean and well-decorated with Moroccan artefacts like Moroccan carpets AKA Zarabi. There’s indoor seating and outdoor.

We sat outdoor because that day the night breeze was very pleasant.

If you prefer to sit indoors then book your table in advance because the place gets full especially on weekends. You can also order online.

They have a good variety of starters, mains, desserts and drinks. Check their menu here.

Personally, I found Moroccan cuisine quite near to Indian cuisine. In fact, it was healthier with less oil and spice level was just adequate. Use of herbs, spices and vegetables take the taste of this food to the next level. Also, they use olive oil to enhance the overall flavors. I was reminded of home cooked food while eating some dishes for sure. Thumbs up, Zarabi for that!

Also, vegetarians and vegans, you will have plenty of options to eat at Zarabi. The food was filling yet light on tummy.
