Man...your pictures have been particularly awesome lately. New camera?


Nice pix!
We went and had the tasting menu, but they instructed us (in no uncertain terms) to put away the camera.
Glad to be reminded of the chow by your blog.



Hi Elmo,

Yes, it's a Canon 5D. It takes wonderful photos, doesn't it? Can you believe that it was dark in there?

Hi Chubby,

Welcome to the blog!

I'm glad you liked the food at Aziza because I certainly did. I'm surprised that they told you to put away the camera. Our server, Rebecca, helped us out quite a bit. She kept the top of the tagine available so I could snap photos with and without it on and she even posed for a pic with the basteeya!


Hi Reid - Interesting Moroccan fusion. I've only had moroccan food once, and thought it was very tasty.


hi reid! - just wanted to say that you can have moroccan food locally if you wanted to. i heard one of my chef friends talking about this place a couple of years ago but i haven't gotten around to checking it out myself. it's casablanca in kailua, o'ahu ( there's a write-up at this site... ).


Hi Kirk,

The food here was delicious. The ingredients were first rate and the service was impeccable. I truly enjoy this "adapatation" of Moroccan food.

Hi Renee,

I have heard of Casablanca, but have never been there. Thanks for reminding me about that place. I'm rarely on the Windward side, but I'm still thinking about the food here at Aziza, that I might make a special trip.

If I do, you'll hear about it here. Thanks again!

Emily Dillon

Yeah, Reid. On the Casablanca reference. You HAVE to go to Casablanca. They are all very friendly, and it's more of an authentic Morrocan experience than a souped up version like at AZIZA. (I'm sure it was wonderful, but I'm of the mind...if it ain't broke...) They don't serve alcohol, but you can bring your own, and you can even order belly dancers( ahead of time) if you want. PLEASE try it out, man. You won't regret it!

  • Canoneos5d
    Canon EOS 5D

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

  • Dscu40r
    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
