Bisteeya at Shokran

We’re off to Morocco this week, sort of. At least on West Irving Park Road. I guarantee you’ve probably whizzed by Shokran on the way to Smoque BBQ or at the very least, were probably focusing more on the exit/on ramp for the Kennedy Expressway than you were on the storefront here. It’s easy to miss. But do yourself a favor and stop in for the spice-laden tagines and the hearty bisteeya. The former are fragrant stews served in conical clay vessels; the latter, a sweet-savory mashup that’s harder than ever to find in Chicago. Thanks to Todd Rosenberg (@toddrphoto) for the fine videography work as always.
