Kabab Café

Kabab Café Review

Middle-Eastern restaurants are a dime a dozen in N.Y.C., but Egyptian-Mediterranean spots are a rarer find, attracting foodies like celebrity chefs/TV personalities Anthony Bourdain and Andrew Zimmern. This charming yet eccentric 16-seat café, which excels at interesting home-style dishes, is a true hidden treasure. The menu changes nightly, but exceedingly tender lamb stuffed with pomegranate is always great. For the super adventurous eater, try the grilled lamb brain or lamb tongue. And, when they have it, the roasted goose in a saffron sauce, is a must. Cash only.
