This casual Middle Eastern spot has about 10 tables and a few beers and wines available, but we like it best for takeout. It’s a block from the B/Q subway stop, so it’s a good place to grab a bite on your way into or out of the neighborhood, and it’s also within eyeshot of Prospect Park, in case you want to eat some shawarma at a picnic table while watching people walk their kids around on leashes. The short menu mostly just consists of shawarma and falafel in a few different formats, and our favorite variation is the falafel platter, which is a big portion of hummus, salad, and yellow rice topped with very crunchy falafel. Whatever you order, make sure to ask for extra hot sauce.
