ETH­NIC CUI­SINE

Where Turin - - DINING -

Hafa Sto­rie

A Piedmont Mo­roc­can restau­rant. In Turin, this is fairly com­mon be­cause the city’s sec­ond largest for­eign com­mu­nity is the Mo­roc­can com­mu­nity, and the restau­rant is lo­cated in Porta Palazzo, the city’s multi- eth­nic dis­trict par ex­cel­lence. While the Pied­mon­tese of­fer­ings are cre­ated by Chris­tian Milone, a young, tal­ented starred chef hail­ing from Trat­to­ria Zap­pa­tori in Pinerolo, the Mo­roc­can dishes are pre­pared by Aicha the cook. Be­tween a seven- veg­etable cous­cous and a braise with po­lenta, this restau­rant lays the foun­da­tions for a har­mo­nious, pro­duc­tive cul­tural ex­change. Open Tues- Fri 11am- 3pm/ 5pm12.30am; Sat 10am-12.30am; Sun 11.30am- 4.30pm. €€. hafas­to­rie.it. Gal­le­ria Um­berto I, 10/13.
