In certain settings, like playing against Chris Mullin in NBA Jam, hearing something's "on fire" isn't a good thing, but it's a great thing at a Lebanese BBQ joint, which is why the brothers behind Mashawi named their Lower QA spot after the Arabic word for traditional grilled street food, which literally means that thing you hear when Mullin hits three consecutive from deep. They've added an undulating drop ceiling and exposed the concrete walls of what used to be an Asian restaurant, and before that an entirely different Lebanese resto where the owners actually worked, but didn't exactly set the world... Mashawi. The list of starters is littered with Middle Eastern mainstays like this fried cauliflower, or Zhara, hummus, Baba Ghanouj, and a soup du jour, which isn't even Arabic, it turns out. If you've got beef with things on skewers, there might be some issues. Or resolve issues the old fashioned way (with booze!) by washing it all down with one of Mashawi's Lebanese wines that're pretty damn rare for Seattle, like beating Golden State in Jam when you have no choice but to play as Benoit Benjamin.
