The grab-and-go menu here is centered on a handful of Middle Eastern proteins (falafel, eggplant-and-boiled-egg “chickplant,” shawarma, and kebabs), any of which can be ordered on a homemade pita, in a chopped salad, as a hummus plate, or on a mixed platter. The falafel comes in three varieties (traditional, mushroom-toasted almond, and spinach-broccoli) served baked, robbing the moist nubs of a crunchy exterior like their fried counterparts, but allowing more nuanced flavors to come through. Furthering healthful slant, kebabs and shawarma is limited to chicken or turkey. The restaurant’s namesake legume is also showcased in four varieties of hummus: plain, spicy jalapeno-and-scallion, smoky roasted red pepper, and pesto-like basil-and-pine nut. Sandwiches, salads, and platters are prepared fresh, assembly-line style, and pre-prepared desserts include baklava and honey cake. There’s a smattering of seating and bright wallpaper printed with menu details to keep diners entertained, but the overall emphasis is on takeout and delivery.
Chicken kebab sandwich, $7.95; almond-and-mushroom falafel sandwich, $5.95
