Hijazi Corner, a popular spot off Edgware Road, has a mix of Yemeni and Saudi dishes, and seems deceptively like a takeaway shop with a few sit-down tables from the outside. But once you pass the till and go down the stairs, you’ll find a lively, packed-out dining room. On any given Tuesday there’ll be a pile of shoes by the entrance of the floor seating as rowdy groups sit cross-legged on the traditional Yemeni-style floor set-up, scooping mandi with their hands and splitting a whole lamb 15 ways. Pay attention to the big bakery section of the menu. Motabag is a a folded pastry filled with things like minced meat (which sounds good but can be a little bland), so we prefer the cheddar one, filled with leeks, tomatoes, and sharp, melted cheese. The lamb haneeth isn’t the best we’ve had but it’s a solid option for a casual weeknight dinner when you don’t want to think about cooking. And if there’s an important football game on, expect to see it playing on the hanging TV screen.
