Lamb brains

Expert Recommendations

"The formidable 'Don' of Egyptian cuisine, Ali El Sayed runs every part of this neighborhood staple (approaching 25 years) almost all by himself. The highlight is the lamb brains, perfectly cooked with enough capers, onions, peppers, and spice to really make them memorable. No menu, no prices, no music, no wine list, yet an education on local and global politics, philosophy, and cuisine."
