Haneez is an assortment of lamb cuts, but you can also opt for the set of five lamb chops, both shareable entrees inexpensive by most standards. The foregoing represents Yemeni banquet food, but there"s home-style fare as well, including saltah (a bubbling stew with a fenugreek emulsion on top, dip your flatbreads) and asseed, a giant dumpling swimming in broth.
