Tifo, Bahnhof Enge, Zürich
Tifo is a maroccan place near the Bahnhof Enge. It looks like what I’d expect from a maroccan place, it’s a bit shady, a bit kitschy and you can smoke shishas. Now Shisha smokers tend to be people who don’t want to smoke but still want to be cool so they curb their satisfaction with a shisha. I tend to sit out on the fun. The menu is very small and I chose a Tajine mit Auberginensauce. Apparently the Tajine is the bowl which the food gets served in. It was lamb sausages, which tasted rustic, of rosmary herbs and were nicely caramelized. The sauce was bland, lacking Aubergine flavor and wasn’t spicy or interesting at all. The rice in the middle of the bowl should have been delivered to the garbage right away. It was mushy and overcooked. If a place can’t cook rice, that is rather an alarming sign. Still on a high note the mint tea was excellent. A strong fragrance, sweet and not bitter, served in a pot for two. I wasn’t too convinced of this place though, I think it’s more for elderly women who are looking for some excitement in their life but think flying to Marocco will damage their hair. Lunch was roughly 28 CHF.
