$15 for $30 Worth of Middle Eastern Food

This deal includes two $15 vouchers. Start off with hummus or baba ghanouj served with pita ($3+), then sample sandwiches such as chicken shawarma, a charbroiled chicken breast thinly sliced and served with garlic-mayo sauce, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and diced pickles ($6), or a kofta kebab, minced lamb and beef mixed with onions and parsley and accompanied by tomato, cucumber, and diced pickles, all mixed in tahini sauce ($6). Those in a meatless mood can dig into a fattoush salad, with pita-chip croutons residing among lettuce, diced tomato, radish, cucumber, and lemon-olive-oil dressing ($4). Finish meals on a decadent note with baklava or basbousa, a type of coconut cake ($2 each). See the menu.

Falafelji does not have waiter service.

Falafelji

Falafelji’s development is nearly a century in the making. Owner Bilal Beiram traces the genesis of his Middle Eastern restaurant back to 1920, when his grandfather learned the trade of crafting falafel in a Middle Eastern port city. From this humble beginning, the grandfather became a globetrotting chef, later retiring and opening his own falafel shop, where Bilal started to help out at 10 years old and continued to do so during summer breaks. Inspired by his grandfather, Bilal infuses the menu of Falafelji—which means "falafel seller"—with authentic Middle Eastern flavors. The dishes, which range from vegetarian falafel sandwiches to kofta kebabs with minced lamb and beef, are available for delivery and takeout.
