As you may know I have quite the passion for all things Moroccan. I love the time I spent there and have many fond memories of all of the places we visited.
My love of Morocco began when I was in my early 20's. There was a little restaurant above a row of stores (at Yonge and Yorkville) called The Sultan's Tent. I used to love going there for dinner! It was so cozy and authentic (looking back now I realise it really was authentic!) and the food was always yummy. It was run by a couple and their family so the experience was always warm and personable.
The original Sultan's Tent. This amazing place was warehouse space turned into a restaurant!
Back in 2002 The Sultan's Tent closed when the building was slated for demolition - that corner of Toronto doesn't even look the same anymore! There is a high rise in it's place.
Fortunately the 'concept' was purchased from the original owner and the new Sultan's tent was opened on Front Street with a whole new look....the menu has remained true to the classic Moroccan flavours with new more mainstream additions.

I love the camels tucked in every corner! I need palm trees for my living room!
The bar - check out the lanterns hanging from the ceiling!
We always called the souk in Marrakesh 'Pier 1 Exports'
This is the restaurant section - along the back wall you can see private rooms - the curtains can be pulled across! Romantic!
I love the colours - I spy another camel!
I was reminded of The Sultan's Tent last week when Fabulous - Pasta Not Included blogged about going to the one in Calgary! I have decided we will be eating Moroccan food for our anniversary in September!
If you should visit Toronto and we get together we must go there for the experience and yummy food!
Have a fabulous day!
