Love Middle Eastern food or looking to try some…ever have enjoy the cuisine of Yemen? Yemen Cafe’s menu is primarily comprised of lamb and chicken dishes along with some vegetarian options and appetizers. Entrees come with Marag a lamb based broth and a simple salad and an amazing very large pita like bread.
I decided on Lamb and ordered up the Fahsah a traditional Yemeni Saltah (root vegetable stew) with shredded lamb served literally bubbling hot in a clay bowl. A lime and a fairly hot pico de gallo like sauce came on the side. It was delish and I mopped the bowl clean with the Yemenite pita bread.
I really loved their Yemenite Pita which was the size of a small pizza, thinner and crisper. Of note, beverages are all non-alcoholic. Put Yemen Cafe on your Middle Eastern restaurants, Cobble Hill spots, Craving Lamb, and Love Bread lists.
Yemen Cafe located at 176 Atlantic Avenue
