Kebab stand and Middle Eastern restaurant where you can feast for cheap.

Our Review

Two people can feast for less than $20 at this lemon-yellow storefront with a takeout counter and eight tables. Start by sharing the vegetarian plate, which brings together smooth hummus, mild baba ghannoush, crunchy falafel patties, cold rice-stuffed grape leaves, and refreshing tabouleh that’s heavy on parsley but light on cracked wheat and onions. Then go for the "combination feast" of three tasty kebabs: big chunks of moist marinated chicken breast, surprisingly tender beef, and well-seasoned ground-beef kifta. They come with plenty of fluffy rice, three little pieces of grilled vegetable, forgettable iceberg lettuce salad, and the kind of pita bread you can sink your teeth into. Other choices include comforting lentil soup, a few more salads, and beef or chicken shawarma; the kebabs, shawarma, and falafel also can be had rolled into pita as sandwiches. The baklava isn’t homemade, but it’s fine anyway. The only drawback is that the blaring TV makes eating in untenable, but otherwise this neighborhood joint is a good choice for a decent meal at an affordable price.
