Its original Gastown spot makes you feel like you’re on vacation, so we’re super excited to see what Moltaqa’s new location will bring to another Vancouver neighbourhood.
The Moroccan restaurant first opened at 51 W Hastings Street in 2018, and now, Moltaqa is expanding with a brand new outpost at 1002 Mainland Street in Yaletown.
This is the former location of neighbourhood coffee spot Ombre Social House.

Moltaqa tells Dished Vancouver the 2,300-square-foot space will seat approximately 40 people and patrons should expect an “elevated and extended” food menu compared to their existing Gastown location.
The eatery promises an abundance of vegan dishes as well as meats that are halal and hormone-free.
Just like the original spot, Moroccan tagine dishes made with goat, rabbit, duck, and lamb will be up for order, and so will the concept’s signature flaming tableside carved rack of lamb.

When it comes to drinks, guests can enjoy a bigger wine menu and an updated cocktail program as well, alongside a selection of Moroccan tea and sweets.
In terms of decor, the owners have plans to incorporate imported items from Marrakech and Casablanca, as well as oil paintings.
Moltaqa Yaletown is slated to open at the end of November. We’ll keep you posted on an exact opening date.
