There are two Yemen (Yemeni) restaurants right near each other on Jones Street at Eddy in the Tenderloin. Today, Friday, the 10th day of February, we made our third lunch experience at the one located on Eddy at Jones and ate like a king. All meals are prepared by the beautiful wife of the owner. For some reason, they think I am Muslim and from Africa. Thus far, I've neither confirmed or denied their alternative fact.
Yemeni cuisine is largely distinct from the more widely known Middle Eastern cuisines, it is unique and coherent, if characterized by a degree of regional variation. The lentil soup with olive oil is especially magnificent.
Chicken, goat, and lamb are the staple meats in Yemen. Breads are an integral part of Yemeni cuisine, most of which are prepared from local grains. Unleavened flat breads are common.
