For a taste of Cairo without having to travel, check out Arabesque, an Egyptian restaurant nestled towards the far end of Sukhumvit Soi 2. Inside, everything from the doors, windows and mirrors to the seats and pillars are decorated in arabesque patterns, all beneath dim lighting. To start off, the mixed mezze platter B consists of green salad, mutabbal grilled eggplant dip , hummus, tahina creamy sesame dip and baba ghanoush pureed eggplant ; the hummus and tahina are a little too sour, but still pair well with the freshly-baked pita bread. Among our favorite dishes are the murgh barra B —large spiced chicken chunks grilled kebab-style, resulting in a crispy deep red crust and a juicy and tender interior—and the Egyptian barbecue fish B , which is cut in half, flattened, slathered in fresh herbs and spices, then grilled—perfect with biryani rice B Another typical Egyptian dish, the fattah mozzah B , sees layers of crunchy bread and rice topped with tender cubes of lamb and a well-balanced vinegar and garlic sauce. Offering a refreshing break from the meat-and-carb-heavy meal, the fattoush salad B is a mix of greens, pomegranate, chunks of tomato and cucumber, all tossed in pomegranate molasses for a sweet, tangy finish.

The arabesque is a form of artistic decoration consisting of "surface decorations based on rhythmic linear patterns of scrolling and interlacing foliage, tendrils" or plain lines,  often combined with other elements. Another definition is "Foliate ornament, used in the Islamic world, typically using leaves, derived from stylised half-palmettes , which were combined with spiralling stems". Interlace and scroll decoration are terms used for most other types of similar patterns. Arabesques are a fundamental element of Islamic art but they develop what was already a long tradition by the coming of Islam. The past and current usage of the term in respect of European art can only be described as confused and inconsistent.
