Baraka cafe: still a really hidden gem

black bean can | Nov 5, 2008 07:28 PM

It's hard to tell that they're open from the outside. At least there's a sign now.

Highlights:

Vegetarian platter du jour. I'm not veg, but this was fantastic. you must like garlic though. Very smoky eggplant.

ricotta mushroom ravioli: in mushroom broth with more mushrooms, thyme, leek. subtle. nice.

chocolate cake: dense, rich, cake itself wasn't too sweet. maybe the best bargain dessert I've seen at $5.50. Mrs. black bean thinks it totally blows away anything from finale.

turkish coffee... rose water and cardamom and probably why I'm WIDE AWAKE RIGHT NOW....

I appreciate that there isn't pressure to turn the tables over, we were able to take our time.
