Last November, Effat and Saffy Effat opened Mena's Grill, a takeout-only, bare bones outpost of some Egyptian foods. You can find Egyptian falafels here. If you miss — or want to try — other Egyptian treats, Saffy will make those as a special order.
The straightforward and copious New Asian-styled menu has been streamlined for today's greener tastes and relaxed prices. The head chef from mainland China dots the menu with conspicuous echoes of the past. So, yes, you can get an order of fried dumplings and an egg roll or enjoy a healthier steamed asparagus starter.
