Alhambra Cafe

This place is down the street from us, on a particularly inauspicious stretch of Irving Park Road. But we went there recently with the grandparents and found it utterly charming and unique. Like going to the home of a friend you wish could come out from the kitchen and chat more about life in his homeland of Egypt or the culinary inspirations that lead him to carefully source the freshest and most environmentally-sound ingredients, but instead you let him remain at work back there making delicious dips to order, generous sandwiches on fresh bread, and stunning salads with locally-sourced greens.

Please go and keep them in business.
