Harlem Bespoke: We had another day date at Silvana on 116th Street last week and tried out the Shakshuka eggs that were on the menu. This little cafe located just west of FDB/8th Avenue is the best bet for some of the better Middle Eastern offerings to be found uptown and the day's selection did not disappoint. The baked eggs simmering in seasoned hot tomato sauce was served up on this cast iron pan which provided a great contrast to the rich colors within. There was overall a flavor not dissimilar to chili to the dish which had pops of saltiness thanks to the juicy olives and the welcoming chunks of feta cheese. A side of pita was also provided to sop up the extra sauce of this specialty that spice lovers should definitely try out.
Need more reasons to check out this cool cafe? In our past post, we also had the most amazing hummus at Silvanna which is also worth trying out: LINK
