There aren’t a lot of delis that have beer on tap, but there also aren’t a lot of delis that have smoked whitefish salad you’d eat twice in the same day (telling yourself that, since it has the word “salad” in it, it’s healthy). If all of that, plus incredibly crispy latkes, house pastrami bacon, and chocolate tahini, sounds like your kind of thing, then head to Mamaleh’s in Kendall Square the next time you’re looking for a casual lunch spot, or you want a breakfast menu that doesn’t have eight pages of eggs.
