2007 BEST Middle Eastern Restaurant

Cafe Barada

In Boston, it wouldn’t seem far-fetched to believe the only food to come out of the Middle East is falafel. Caf Barada disproves that notion, though, with its spicy mujeddara, a blend of lentils, rice, and onions; shish kebabs; and lubia, a comforting lamb stew. Not everything is available every day, but that just gives you an excuse to go back. And you’ll want to—because, actually, its falafel alone is worth the trip.
