Second Moroccan Night at The Food Lodge

And again a Hit!

By Ralph Kratzer

A few weeks ago I  reported about the first Moroccan Night in The Food Lodge in Catalköy and what a success it had been. To remember – please click here!

So on Saturday, 23rd November, I was back on the road to Catalköy together with some friends of The Foreign Residents in the TRNC (TFR).

This time I did not make ​​the same mistake of having already eaten before I went!

Sonja, one of the two owners of The Food Lodge, welcomed me with the words: “This time we have organized everything better!”

I personally found the organization of the first Moroccan Night not bad, but in fact, Sonja and her partner Latifa had again thought about  improvements.

In advance of the second event, rather than taking reservations, tickets for admission were sold. This resulted in more security in the planning of the evening and the use of the staff. So it came about that more staff was available, which was very advantageous for supplying the guests with drinks.

As during the first night, some weeks before, the numerous belly dance performances of the ladies of the “Little Eastern Studios” attracted the guests on the spot under their spell.

I suspect Sonja and Latifa already have ideas for similar events for the future in their minds!
