Welcome Cousin Tut
With the King Tut Exhibit just down the block Aya’s Cafe has “unearthed its inner Egyptian.”
Now its four-course Pharaonic menu is bursting with national pride: The menu’s Greek-style moussaka has become stewy musakaa, seasoned with aromatic Arabic spices and nutmeg, and presented in a clay casserole. The lovely, tender cilantro lamb stew with chickpeas in tomato-lemon sauce has become Lamb stew, Tut-style. A shepherd’s salad of tomato, cucumber and feta is now, well, Egyptian salad.
