4/8 Soi 3/1, Sukhumvit Road, Bangkok, Thailand

The Overview

On what's known as Soi Arab, this is a lively lane with a wonderful array of Indian and Middle Eastern and even Ethiopian options. At Nefertiti, regulars pack the tables outside, watching Arabic-language movies that are always playing on the giant flat- screen TV. Inside, the dining room is filled with embroidered tablecloths, a mosaic fountain, hanging lamps and chandeliers—all imported from Egypt. First-timers to Arab cuisine should start with the appetizer platter of Middle Eastern comfort food: hummus, baba ghanoush, falafel, tabouleh and feta cheese. Also try the fresh chopped Lebanese salad, the well-seasoned minced beef or chicken, the grilled lamb chops, and the rice with eggplant and soft chunks of lamb. After dinner try a cup of strong Turkish coffee and enjoy the street life.
