The national dish of Iraq is called "Masgouf." Masgouf is a traditional Iraqi dish made from grilled or oven-roasted fish, typically from the carp family, such as the Iraqi river carp. The fish is marinated with a blend of spices, typically including turmeric, salt, pepper, and sometimes dried tamarind. It is then slow-cooked over an open fire, giving it a distinct smoky flavor. While we don't serve Masgouf here at Samoon, we invite you to come in and try some of our other delicious Iraqi dishes.
