Yemen Cuisine (Court St.) vs. Yemen Cafe (Atlantic Ave.)

I know a lot of you Brooklyn chowhounds like Yemen Cafe (176 Atlantic Ave., 2nd floor). I also want to recommend YEMEN CUISINE, around the corner at 145 Court, slightly south of Atlantic (i.e, across from Trader Joe's entrance). The place doesn't look like much, but I think the food is equally delicious. The same lamb broth, fresh-made bread, roasted lamb (haneez), assed, fatta, etc. When I go for lunch there, I'm usually the only person not speaking Arabic and the only woman in the place, but the atmosphere is not unwelcoming. Next time I want to try the broiled trout with tomato sauce.

P.S. I tried to add this to an existing Atlantic Ave./Middle Eastern thread, but for some reason it didn't work.
