Serves meat, vegan options available. Follow-up to Casablanca Moroccan sandwich shop, born because the owner/chef wanted a place to be more experimental and focus on Moroccan favorites like tagine. Offers a vegan tagine and a Morocco over rice vegan with crispy vegetables and marinated tempeh. Carrot salad and rice can be ordered vegan. Open Tue-Sun 12:00pm-10:00pm.

Fresh and fragrant with friendly host

Loved this place! Great vibe, super friendly owner, and excellent food. The couscous was so tasty, the carrot salad with almond feta was divine, and the mixed plate was excellent. A little pricy but worth it!

Color and flavor

I had Moroccan food here for the first time, and I loved the flavor and seasoning so much, I came back only 2 days later!

Currently, there are 3 dishes that are vegan-friendly:
- Carrot salad (ask for vegan cheese!)
- Morococo over rice - vegan version
- Vegan Tagine with couscous (not on the menu, but available upon request)

The cafe/bistro is located along the main road of Haebangchon (HBC 해방촌). You first order and pay at the counter, then the food will be brought to your table. It's a bit dark inside, there are not a lot of tables and seating is not the most comfortable. But the atmosphere is still warm and friendly.

Pros: taste good

Cons: wish they had more options

Loved it!

I had the Moroccan over Rice. It was sooo good! I loved the combination of many different flavors. It tasted fresh and delicious! I'll come back often😄

I recently tried the carrot salad without cheese. It was sooo good! It tasted nutty, sweet, savory, and just so amazing!!

Good Food

This is a great little place in HBC. The staff is very friendly. They are also dog friendly on their small patio. But there is not a lot of seating here nor tons of options.

Pros: Dog-friendly, Great staff!!

Cons: Not many places to sit, Not a lot of options

Favourite restaurant in HBC!

My favourite restaurant in the HBC neighbourhood! The 'vegan over rice' is fresh, healthy, satisfying and absolutely delicious. I love the combination of spices and flavours. The carrot salad is also delicious (but be aware it has cheese on it). The restaurant is small, cosy and friendly.

Pros: Low price; friendly service

Cons: Only a few veg options

Simply beautiful

Beautiful color combination will make you feel joyful already. Simple, fresh, tasty, healthy. Reasonable price will satisfy you too. Best carrot salad (ask w/out peta cheese) and veggie over rice is fantastic! 우선 음식의 색상이 너무 조화롭고 예뻐서 보기만 해도 즐거워요. 심플하고 신선하고 맛있고 건강한 음식이에요. 가격도 너무 착해서 정말 만족스러워요. 당근 샐러드와 비건 오버 라이스 너무 맛있습니다! (비건은 당근 샐러드의 페타 치즈 빼고 달라고 하세요). 음식 주문할때 비건이라고 말씀하시면 좋아요!

Delicious and cozy

I've been here a couple of times now and the food is delicious as is the wine, with good options for both vegans and non vegan friends. The atmosphere is great and the staff are really friendly! Worth making a reservation for a bigger group, it gets busy.

Small and cozy place with very nice owner

We came to this restaurant with a big group but since the place is pretty small, they couldn't place us here. However, across the street they had the restaurant Casablanca with which they worked together so we could sit there and order food from both places. I ordered the Morocco over rice vegan version and it was super delicious!

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Cozy place, Nice owner(s)

Cons: Pretty small places but that makes the atmosphere

Simply delectable!

Visited this place 4 months ago, but forgot to upload a review. I had the carrot salad and Morocco over rice. Both ave very delicious. It was quiet on that day, so I also had a nice conversation with the owner, Mr. Wahid.

Incredible Moroccan vegan over rice

Great little cafe with two solid veg options — Moroccan vegan over rice with tempeh, and the chermoula carrot salad

it was so yummy and they even have vegan halloumi cheese for additional 3000krw which was delicious BUT the red sauce was immensely spicy (I guess that's Moroccan cuisine haha) so if you're not so good with spice, maybe ask for them to leave it out and make everything as little spicy as possible.

Pros: vegan halloumi!

Cons: not many vegan dishes

Affordable, tasty and healthy

Chef Wahid is well known for his big portions, quality food and good prices. He opened Morococo Cafe after his sandwich shop Casablanca was well enough established to be able to experiment more. He has a new vegan tagine launching this month, Moroccan over Rice Vegan dish with tempeh, plant milk lattes and also a carrot salad that can be ordered without cheese.
