This classic Yemeni restaurant has served Brooklynites since 1986, and a big reason why is the showstopping lamb haneeth that’s been slow-cooked for hours. Each meal comes with complimentary homemade bread, salad, and marag (soup/broth) that is perfect for the fall, winter, or any other time you might need to warm up. Another excellent dish is the roast chicken, which comes on a platter of fragrant, seasoned rice. What we like to do is use the marag as a gravy to accompany the rice that makes an even more delicious meal.
