DINNER MENU‏
Truly an eclectic style of cooking and preparation, Alhambra’s culinary offerings are extremely diverse, thanks to centuries of cultural interaction. With hints of Berber, Moorish, Mediterranean, and Arab influences, cooks in the royal kitchens of Fez, Meknes, Marrakesh, Rabat and Tetouan refined it over time and created the basis for what is known as Moroccan cuisine today.

Our first time and we can for the experience. Combination plate was good. Beef and chicken kabobs. Chicken shawarma was average. They put little rice and more chicken. They need to put more rice with the chicken shawarma. Overall it was nice.
