La Shish Kabob
La Shish Kabob takes meat on a stick seriously with preparations that would smell and taste like home to eaters from Jerusalem, Palestine, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria. Falafels fly out of this clean and casual counter-service restaurant, in addition to traditional plates like chicken shawarma, hummus and baba ghannouj. The signature platter, a mixed grill of beef, lamb and chicken skewers on a mound of basmati rice, gives carnivores the best sampling of the fare. A lentil soup side rounds it out, and can be washed down with a cold Moussy (a bottled Malt beverage that was born out of Switzerland but is popular in the Middle East).
