Kan Zaman has a much more freewheeling environment than you’ll find in other area middle-eastern restaurants. Arabic language programs play on the TV screens and, in the middle of dinner, you might suddenly find a belly dancer wending her way past your table.
The food should be familiar by now though: hummus, tabouli, falafel, kibbe, shawarma, kabobs. For a change of pace, there are also multiple pizza choices. Typical of middle-eastern restaurants, the menu is very vegetarian-friendly. Evenings are lively — there’s regular entertainment, including dancers, singers, and DJs, here several evenings a week, and it’s open until 2:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. If the bro-packed brew rooms a few blocks away aren’t quite your thing, Kan Zaman offers an exotic alternative.
