    A Restaurant’s Take

    Chicken shish kebab at Cafe Barada

    In North Cambridge, doing wonders with ordinary ingredients.

    Katherine Taylor/File

    At Cafe Barada in North Cambridge, Claude Salameh, who learned to cook from her mother, does wonders with ordinary ingredients. A chicken shish kebab plate is almost too generous, giant bites of meat on a mound of rice with hunks of zucchini, onion, and tomato.
