Mallawach pizza ($8.25) is not truly a pizza; it's a kosher dairy mashup of griddled flatbread and marinara with cheese, Yemeni Jewish and Italian-American. I would have done better to order my mallawach (mah-Lao-wahk) in the traditional presentation, undressed, with tomato sauce, salad, hardboiled egg, and feta on the side. There's little sense in smothering a hot flaky flatbread such as this.
Also shown: another application of ethnic idiom to classic carbohydrate: Cajun fries (small, $3.75).
