And he’s back! Chef Mohamed Ghaleb gave me a call last week to tell me he will be moving back to Polk Street with his much-loved ~TAJINE~. He moved into the Indian Aroma space on Polk, and opened over the weekend. (This will be the fourth location for his Moroccan restaurant, and hopefully he’ll be able to sit tight.) I’m looking forward to his homey and affordable cooking again, namely his bastilla and merguez sausage couscous. The menu is slightly expanded, with a few more vegetarian options, and a new fish tajine. The place is halal, so no beer and wine is served, but true to Tajine’s previous locations, you can BYOB. Hours are Tue-Sun 11:30am-2:30pm, and for dinner, Tue-Thu and Sun 5pm-10pm, and Fri-Sat 5pm-11pm. 1653 Polk St. at Clay, 415-440-1718.
