Moroccan roll

In the expanding Face Bar empire, El Wajh is the new North African outpost.

Unjustly confined to the elephant's graveyard of Maoming Nan Lu, this authentic Moroccan restaurant has been thriving on recommendations from its satisfied clientele.

If you have been privy to these ravings, you may have heard it's a tad expensive and a bit cozy, but you will certainly have been told all is justified by the quality of cuisine. We enjoyed a formidable Boeuf aux Pruneaux (138 yuan) with melt-in-your-mouth quail's eggs, a filling Chicken Couscous (128 yuan) and a Souris D'Agneau a la Pomme (158 yuan) that will remain in our memories long after our wallet has healed.

Don't miss the Stimson Estate Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon--as spicy as the menu and at 54 yuan per glass, it's some of the best value on offer.
