Watch me whip at Me Jana, where your best bet is any dish that comes with the restaurant’s signature garlic whip, which is like mayo on speed. This includes sujok -- the spiciest dish on the menu comprised of beef and lamb sausages that need the obligatory cooling bath the garlic whip provides. Other must-orders at this Lebanese eatery, named for a folk ballad about welcoming friends to reminisce, include the freakishly tender lamb shank, fried kebbeh, and lahem de ajeen (baked pita with ground lamb on top).
