This Moroccan/Sri Lankan/Jamaican mash-up (yes, really) is popular with locals that swing by for a meat fix after an early screening at the Hayden Orpheum Picture Palace across the street. The food menu runs the gamut from super addictive "afro" potato fries to five-hour spicy lamb shanks, and each dish comes with an exotic anecdote whether you want it or not. They have a reasonable cocktail list, a lengthy tequila list, and a budget-friendly wine list. Ask for the bin ends version if you're after a rare gem.
