Location: 80 Mohamed Sultan Rd, #01-12 The Pier at Robertson, Singapore 239013

5. Tajine

Moroccan food may not fit the conventional notion of romantic cuisine, not the way French cuisine embodies fiery passion and refined elegance. Instead, romance in Moroccan cuisine is weaved in differently — one that unfolds slowly, like the gentle burn of a budding flame, evoking memories of intimate moments that can only develop with time. 

Moroccan cuisine focuses on hearty dishes, such as the traditional Tajine, a staple dish (the eponym to the restaurant) where the meat or fish is slow-cooked in a claypot. The portion is perfect for a couple. But if you want to ry more dishes, we recommend A Bit of Everything ($58). An accurate reflection of its name, this selection is truly a bit of six types of Moroccan salads, such as Zaalouk and Taktouka. The perfect vehicle? The Batbout ($8) or Pita ($8), baked fresh in their wood-fire oven.

The seating arrangement ensures a private and comfortable space, allowing you and your partner to enjoy the experience without distractions. Yet, what truly distinguishes NOKA from other kaiseki restaurants in Singapore is its commitment to showcasing the pinnacle of Japanese agriculture.
