Fodor's Expert Review House of Spices
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
As usual, you'll have to climb a few steep flights of stairs before arriving at this breezy, open-air terrace restaurant. The decor is simple yet stylish, with walls painted in relaxing shades of blue and green, colorful woven place mats, dark wooden tables and chairs, and friendly waiters in blue shirts and prayer hats. If you're craving Western food, the pizzas and homemade pastas are good, and there are plenty of red meat options.
At the back of the house is a traditional tearoom which is a great, intimate escape from shopping in the streets.
