Fodor's Expert Review Bay Tree

$ West End Middle Eastern

This popular small café in the university area is unpretentious and quite cheap. It serves wonderful Middle Eastern food—mostly vegetarian dishes, but there are a few lamb and chicken creations as well. Egyptian phool (broad beans dressed with spices and herbs), Turkish mulukia (fried eggplant with a tomato-and-herb sauce), and kurma (stew with spinach, herbs, and beans) are among its delights. Two-course lunch and pretheater menus are a good deal, and both standard egg and Arabian breakfasts are served. You can also bring your own wine; there is a good wine store just a few doors away, and there is no corkage charge.
