Having lived within a five-block radius for the past ten years, we have seen restaurants come and go, analyzed reasons for their success or failure, and even made predictions when new places sprout up.
Kulushkat is one of those fresh faces in the neighborhood, a stone’s throw from the upcoming stadium and beside another new place we happened to try first (Va Beh). I had to make do with my camera phone that evening as the excursion was unplanned.
We had the spicy falafel which was tender, well-seasoned and deceivingly spicy; and the eggplant a la Yafa which was so flavorful that I had gobbled it up with their awesome hot sauce before I could be stopped.
The service was sweet and welcoming, the ambiance clean and cozy while tiny. The place left me wanting more space in my belly to try the other items on the menu.
Definitely money well spent. We’ll be back!
Kulushkat means “shut up and eat,” which is also the way I approach life.
