Fast-casual eats have become quite the trend in Columbus and Couscous House brings delicious Moroccan food to the mix.
We stopped into Couscous House for take-out on the way home from a successful birthday shopping trip for my sister. Everyone left happy with giant bowls of couscous deliciousness.
I already loved couscous so it didn’t take much convincing for me to stop in here. It’s a small place on Morse Road that serves fast-casual Morrocan food. Don’t worry if you don’t know what that consists of, I didn’t really either. You get a bed of couscous (whole wheat or regular) or salad and then tons of delicious toppings to choose from.
My mom is one of those people that always tries to make good food just a little bit healthier, so she was disappointed when I opted for the regular couscous. She got whole wheat for herself, my sister, and my step-dad. I should have listened to her because it tasted the same, making the meal even healthier than it already was.
After you choose your base there is a section of cooked veggies and proteins. I got chicken, potatoes, and carrots. After that, you choose your uncooked veggies. There a ton of options and no limit on how many you can get.
Couscous House was super kid friendly. Nothing is spicy unless you add jalapenos or the spicy sauce. My sister loves couscous (yes, even the whole wheat) and could put exactly the veggies she wanted on it. She opted for no meat with potatoes, cucumbers, corn, black olives and of course cheese.
Maybe I’m a wimp but just a warning on the spicy sauce- they really mean spicy. My step-dad kind of shrugged but he puts hot sauce on everything so I think maybe he’s burnt his taste buds (is that a thing?).
This place was also really affordable. Each meal is around $8 and I didn’t finish it so really I got two meals.
Couscous House is located at 1611 Morse Road near Clintonville.
