This Halal butcher shop and Middle Eastern grocery behind the Cedar’s brand of hummus also grills up well-seasoned skewered meat kebabs (chicken, lamb, beef, sausage) and anything else you might want tucked into pita. The dozen stools opposite the grill are often taken with locals wolfing down generously filled oven-hot pockets of falafels doused with richly bitter tahini. Other tasty fillers: Grilled kiibbeh, wheat-crusted meatballs enriched with egg and pine nuts; lean, cumin-scented sausages the size of cocktail franks; and tabbouleh salad bright green with parsley. The dozen or so kebabs are basted with yogurt and Syrian red chile and flavorfully charred well-done. Daily specials complement the already extensive menu, but whatever you order is sure to go well slathered with the shop’s luscious hummus and a dose of potently delicious garlic sauce with soy oil, eggs, lemon, and, of course, tons of garlic.
