Fodor's Expert Review El Hussein

$$$$ East Bank Middle Eastern

Don't let the stained tablecloths at this upper-story dining room put you off: communal eats can be a messy business. Standard mixed-grill items share the lineup with less common offerings such as turkey, duck, quail, and rabbit, which must be ordered before arriving. Set menus serve up a choice of meat or fish accompanied by a table filled with salads, rice, and soups like molokheya, a thick green gelatinous soup made from jute leaves.
