Freshness is key to the menu items at Kabab-Je. Not surprisingly, the menu at Kabab-Je offers dozens of these small plates, including an ever-so-smooth hummus, smoky eggplant moutabel, ful moudamas (here not strictly fava beans, but mixed with chickpeas), house-made spicy soujok sausages, salads and stuffed grape leaves in olive oil. Among Kabab-Je's best are the gorgeous, succulent offerings from the charcoal grill: lamb kebabs, kafta skewers and boneless chicken with garlic sauce.
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.
