For more than 20 years, this Old Town spot has dished out good-quality, reasonably priced Middle Eastern food in a neighborhood not exactly known for bargains. With a few exceptions (including the tart, garlicky, blended fava beans, commonly called foul) the menu's not terribly adventurous, but they do a great job with standards like hummus, flavorful falafel and well-seasoned kefta kebab. Service is indifferent, and the rickety old chairs and scuffed red banquette running along the wall don't inspire diners to linger over their Arabic coffee, but desserts, like warm honey cake, can always be taken to go.
