This charming downtown café offers a menu of flavorful Middle Eastern fare. Both chicken and beef shawarma are featured, thin slices of spiced and roasted meat served over rice or pita. Steak, chicken and shrimp kebabs, lamb chops and many vegetarian options are available. Specialties include Moroccan roasted chicken, penne with ground beef in a rich, five-cheese béchamel sauce, and the café's namesake, a casserole of rice, lentils and pasta in spicy tomato sauce. Hummus and stuffed grape leaves are great starters for sharing.
