Yemeni @ Yemen

"Yemeni cuisine is entirely distinct from the more widely known Middle Eastern cuisines and even differs slightly from region to region. Typical Yemeni dishes, that resemble stews and are eaten with bread, are cooked in traditional black, stone pots (called madara) that have age and character. Famous stew dishes include salta, fahsa, and odgat. Yemeni cuisine also includes mandi, which are the huge rice dishes with meat on top. Yemeni desserts are also very unique and heavy with dates, bananas, bread, honey, cheese, and cream" (from the introduction to Yemeni cuisine of a Yemeni restaurant in Qatar).

Yemen Restaurant is the only Yemeni restaurant within city limits, and the food appears to be fairly authentic but somewhat limited. It did receive very good reviews on zabihah.com, which all recommend the mandi, a rice and meat (chicken or lamb) dish. Prices range from $8 to $15. Alcohol is not allowed. The restaurant does accept credit cards. For an overview of Yemeni cuisine, click here.

    I don't know why, but it was already past 1 pm when I got an email saying I was confirmed and off the waitlist. I couldn't change it to not attending. I was no longer able to go and had made other plans. Hope it doesn't count against me!

      Sorry about that. It appears the website doesn't send notifications when someone on the Waitlist is moved to Attending. This won't count against you.

    I was looking forward to my first meetup with this group, but am feeling under the weather. Certainly don't want any else feeling this way, so I'm staying put.
