Kosher restaurants are held to high standards: they're inspected by rabbis, they use different dishes for meat and dairy products, and no one is allowed to use the letter "E" while dining in one. Enjoy a vowel-light meal with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mediterranean and American diner fare at Max's Kosher Cafe in Wheaton, Maryland.
The chefs at Max's Kosher Café craft a menu of eclectic comfort cuisine under the watchful eye of the Rabbinical Council of Greater Washington. Slices of rye, kaiser, whole-wheat, or pumpernickel bread juggle the harmonious entities of corned beef, pastrami, coleslaw, and russian dressing that make up the We Meat Again ($12.95), or they may strain under the weight of the roast beef ($10.95), which may be bumped up to 3/4-pound of meat ($5 extra) and can come with two people to help eat it. Shawarma ($5.50–$10.95) and falafel ($4.95–$7.50) adorn dishes in an array of fractional states, and two pieces of chicken ($6.95 for white meat, $6.50 for dark meat or an assortment) emerge from the fryer intent on reuniting with long-lost french fries.
I'd been hearing people wax poetic about these shawarmas for years and figured I'd be let down, but they really are that good.Jessica H., Yelp, 10/26/10
There is a dizzying array of items to put on your salad/pita, I suggest mixing it up because they are pretty much all good.Kim R., Yelp, 8/18/09
