Critics' Pick

Brian Reinhart


  • Mon-Sat 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Dallas area’s only Egyptian restaurant focuses on street eats, including ta’meya, a freshly fried snack much like falafel but made with fava beans. Also irresistible is fattah, a fork-tender lamb shank resting atop rice, and vegetable moussaka, which is more stew-like than the Greek version and perfect on a scoop of pita. Chef Bosayna Elhouni started Mubrooka as a delivery service working out of a catering kitchen before opening this space in 2018.

Top pick: Koshari is one of the world’s great comfort foods. A mix of macaroni, spaghetti noodles, rice and lentils, koshari gets topped with fried onions and a slathering of garlicky hot sauce. In other words, it’s irresistible.

The downside: None, really, but pickled tomatoes are an acquired taste.

Fun fact: North Texas’ original Egyptian restaurant, King Tut, has served southern Fort Worth for almost 30 years. But we don’t have to drive that far anymore.
