Hapisgah--What's Good?

Going Sunday with family. Someone recently posted they have great yemenite soup--good news. Can anyone provide insight on what their bread and butter dishes are? I eat shwarma often, and figure this isn't the place for a steak...SO, outside of steak and shwarma, what do you guys recommend?

  1. Are you referring to the in Queens? I haven't been there in a while but they did make a great steak with mushrooms and onions on top. It comes out in the pan simmering. I also like their baby chicken kababs.

    1. Hapisgah IS THE place for steaks. one of the few places that does steaks right

      1. STEAK, STEAK and more STEAK. The Pita is great (they serve it warm) but it will fill you up and take away room that should be saved for the STEAK. The Yemenite Soup is awesome, make sure to share it with your date so that you have enough room for the STEAK. The hummous and falafel platters are quite tasty - order some to take home so that you won't be distracted from the STEAK.

        1. Wow, the people have spoken. This is good news bc I don't eat kosher, unless I get together with family and certain friends, and I am quite sick of the same 2-3 Manhattan steak joints we always go to. For a guy who loves salty, rare steak, any recommended cuts?

          1. PAPAT - u single? sound like my kinda guy! EAT STEAK!

              Married w/4. My oldest two (8 & 6) both love STEAK too.

              As to cuts at Hapisgah, go for the house steak its about 1 and 1/2 inches thick. They have others including the sizzling one that someone mentioned above, but I am partial to the straight off the grill slightly charred on the outside and med. rare on the inside house steak (I'm pretty sure that's the title on the menu).
