Owner Aladin Habib gave Park Slopers a place to get their falafel fix when he opened this eatery 26 years ago. Half sit-down restaurant, half takeout joint, this is the go-to spot for killer kebabs, koshari (the addictive Egyptian rice, noodle and lentil dish) and creamy rice pudding. Of course, it’s the falafel that regulars love most—made with more fava beans than chickpeas, along with homemade tahini sauce, parsley, vegetables and several “secret” spices.
