An unassuming vegetarian café doesn’t exactly seem like a magnet to Seattle lunch-hunters, but the ordinary Belltown storefront holds a magical world of Middle Eastern flavors and artistic entertainment. The menu is made up of the same diverse dishes you’d find on an Israeli street: Moroccan shakshuka, Yemeni flatbread, and Persian omelets. The Iraqi-origin sabich, a fried-eggplant sandwich, is the star, though, stuffed with eggs, pickles, hummus, cabbage, and tahini. All the dishes taste best taken to the seating area in the back, which peeks in on a glassblowing studio: lunch and a show. NAOMI TOMKY
