From Iraqi master chef Yahya Salih, Jannah (also called YaYa from chef's beloved, prior SF restaurant) is an affordable Middle Eastern restaurant serving excitingly uncommon Iraqi dishes with home-cooked flare. In a humble, mellow neighborhood space in NoPa/Western Addition, try phyllo pastry-covered savory "pies" (lamb, chicken, vegetarian) or unusual dips like mama ghanoog (eggplant, carrot, tamarind) or hudhud ghanooge (eggplant, turnip, date) alongside more common hummus and baba ghanoog. Save room for kenafa for dessert: shredded, crispy phyllo stuffed with mild, savory Middle Eastern cheese and covered with pistachios and date syrup.
