Went last night. Small cozy place, in sort of a residential area near Central Sq..friendly service.

Started with a beef/lamb sausage appetizer, some flatbread, and sort of a rose flavored house made lemonade..all great.

Then, melkha..stuffed eggplant with cheese, lamb shank (good, but the weakest dish), and a Bastille Torte..this was like a phyllo dough pie with squab, figs, nutmeg, cinnamon..delicious..36 hour notice required.

This was a first taste of Algerian food for us and we really enjoyed it.

Highly recommend it...very different spicing than other cuisines that I'm familiar with.

Nice pre "appetizer" of Bees River oysters at Central Kitchen. I really like these oysters and if you see them on a menu, give them a try.
