Mourad's family-style lamb shoulder [San Francisco]

Robert Lauriston | Jul 14, 201504:11 PM     6

appetizer (a la carte): OLIVES . preserved lemon . marash $6

appetizer (a la carte): ALMONDS . harissa $6

appetizer (a la carte): EGGPLANT . cucumber . oregano . pepper . flatbread . za’atar $16

lamb (slices were 5+ ounces), cumin salt, salad

beans

saffron couscous

kale with kumquat

potatoes

sauces

They say serves 4-6. There were three of us and we took more than half home. Really a generous amount of food for $165 and much more my style than most of the rest of the menu. It's almost like he has two restaurants in the same space.

The olives and nuts (both served warm) were also generous portions for the price.

The eggplant was a slightly deconstructed caponata, instead of raisins they use a raisin syrup so it's less sweet but still has a hint of that flavor. The fresh flatbreads that came with it were great.
