For more than 30 years, Zena's has been dishing up the finest kibbe outside the Middle East. The 1,000-year-old family recipe has been passed down to Zena's charming owner, Shouki, who bakes the lean ground beef, cracker wheat, onions and mild spices just like his father's father's father's father's father did. Shouki recommends a toke of shisa before dinner-a water-pipe puff of aromatic tobacco soaked with your choice of fruit syrup.
