“Tarboosh used to be one...”
Reviewed February 2, 2008

Tarboosh used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but the quality seems to have dropped in recent years. The service has become slow, and the food less savory. Still, in its heyday, I would always go and just order about two appetizers (called mezza) per person, and we'd all shares tapas-style. From the appetizers, I always ordered the fool mudammas and the sambousek. For dessert, I was always partial to their warbaat, but I don't think it's offered on the menu anymore (like I said, the quality has suffered in recent years).
