Fodor's Expert Review L'Emir

$$ City Center Middle Eastern

The atmosphere is right out of One Thousand and One Nights at this restaurant near the train station, with belly dancers performing every Saturday night urging patrons to join in. Those who are so inclined can retire to the lounge and smoke flavored tobacco from a water pipe. The Middle Eastern menu is largely vegetarian and heavy on garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice. Meat dishes favor lamb, including the house-made lamb sausage and marinated chops grilled over charcoal. Save room for dessert, either baklava, flaky pastry layered with honey and nuts, or amar eilden, apricot pudding dotted with raisins.
