This is a completely no thrill food outlet. It's more of a sandwich stand, however. This is the absolute best Shawerma that I have had all over the world including Shawerma that I have had in countries like Jordan, Kuwait, and Palestine. The lamb Shawerma is so tender, jucie, and yet well done. The souce that they use is not... More

This hole in the wall has been handing out my A-rab chicken fix for years. Great flavors, funny and efficient service, good quality ingredients; all at a very reasonable price. Big portions too!

Counter seating for five, this little hole in the wall makes the best shawerma in town. Chicken on Tuesdays and Fridays, lamb the rest of the time. Falafel sandwich rollups, house plate with hummus and baba ghanoush, falafel dolma, tabouleh, pita, mmmmmm. Don't feel awful, eat a falafel!

We have been going to this little eatery for over 20 years. You can see the cooks frying up the flafels right in the window as you pass by. Many customers take the food out as there are a few chairs inside and a two tables on the sidewalk. We almost always get the Flafel Deluxe or the Chicken Shawarma... More

I found this restaurant while doing a search for restaurants and the rating on this restaurant encouraged us to go try it. We rode the bus to come here and I must say that it was a long ride followed by a long walk. However, the food was very yummy, fresh and "truly" delicious. We ordered the combo plate which... More

The combo plate was perfect. With cucumber, tabbouleh salad , eggplant humus , etc. it was perfect. Place is very small and not fancy but perfect for a lunch time meal.

My favorite choice at Truly Mediterranean is the falafel deluxe. What makes this wrap so special is the added value of grilled eggplant making the ordinary dry falafel moist as can be. If you are counting calories you may want to ask them to leave out the steak fries although not to be missed. The serving of one toasty wrap... More
