Deep in Chinatown, this quirky little café serves up an ambitious menu with eclectic global influences. Want Mexican food? Try the tilapia-filled tacos or the steak fajitas. Mediterranean? Choose from dishes like vegetarian couscous and a crunchy falafel sandwich slathered with tahini. A seafood curry stew, skirt steak cooked with caramelized onions and red wine, and a variety of handmade pastas round out the international offerings. Breakfast and brunch are especially popular here, when the restaurant serves things like breakfast burritos and a Yemeni dish of phyllo dough topped with eggs and tomato sauce. Wooden bistro chairs, white tile and colorful oil paintings give the place a quirky, homey vibe. Luckily the café remains relatively undiscovered, meaning it¹s pretty easy to get a seat and the atmosphere is relaxed, a good place to get a cup of coffee in the late afternoon or a late-night dessert.—Keith Wagstaff
