Today I ate Egyptian food at this little place in downtown Portland I've probably passed a thousand times and never noticed. Name? Mummy's, of course.
Unfortunately, the menu consisted of pretty standard Middle Eastern stuff. Y'know, hummus, falafel, pita, contempt for our sacred American way of life...
Okay, kidding. There was no falafel.
I ate the only things on the menu I'd never heard of: daoud basha, which are herby meatballs, and medammes, which are slow cooked fava beans and my new favorite thing. Seriously, I'm going back for them. And a heapin' bowl of human rights abuses.
Kidding. Everyone knows that dish is always plated.
