Sanaa on Atlantic Avenue

Another Middle Eastern place called Sanaa opened a couple of months ago at 193 Atlantic Avenue, right next Damascus bakery. It's owned by Yemenis. Just had a wonderful lunch there of various appetizers: baba ganoush, hummus, stuffed grape leaves, falafel, tabouleh and a huge, freshly-made flatbread. For dessert I tried fattah with honey and butter, which was awesome (although I have nothing to compare it to, since I'd never had fattah before).

By the way, the menu has hilarious spelling mistakes, such as "golf shrimp with bread crump," fish with tomatoes and "green papers" and (my favorite) selections from the "sandwich bored".

I was one of the only non-Middle Eastern people there, but the waitress spoke decent English so I didn't have any trouble asking questions and ordering.

Anyway, it's worth a try. If anyone else has tried this place, I would love to know what you thought too.
