This tiny establishment, like its many cousins throughout the metro area, serves simple, traditional Middle Eastern dishes—felafel, houmous, kebabs of chicken or lamb—with little fanfare and to many fans. You order at the counter, get a number, and then take your place at one of only two small communal tables—sit even if you’re getting takeout, because this fast food isn’t necessarily fast. The houmous is exceptionally creamy; the pita bread, made fresh throughout the day, manages to be simultaneously lighter and more substantial than the ordinary.
