  • It's a question you might not be asking after a good meal.
Those of you needing a food-related nudge to experience the beauty (good) and crowds (bummer, but the timed tickets are rumored to help) of the Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs exhibit at the de Young (50 Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive at John F. Kennedy) may want to pencil in a Tut at Twilight on some upcoming Tuesday or Wednesday evening.

Through September 30, the museum's de Young Cafe has a special $14 prix fixe menu, $21 if you go royal with a wine carafe. An adult ticket for the discounted Tut at Twilight museum admission is $20. Youths (ages 6-17) and FAMSF members pay $15. Behold the menu for August (after the jump). Can't say it's what King Tut ate, exactly, but it does seem to take inspiration from the eastern Mediterranean.

First course:

A trio of summer tomato soup with feta, cucumber-garbanzo salad with oregano vinaigrette, and tabouleh with lots of parsley, served with warm cumin pita chips

Entrée:

Grilled Marin Sun Farms beef tenderloin skewer, served with saffron-currant couscous, eggplant stew, and minted yogurt

Sweet:

Local strawberry and rhubarb tart with warm caramel, milk-chocolate cigar, and lemon cream
