When owner May Ramli first opened the doors to Sultan’s Market, she stocked the shelves with hot dogs and candy bars—thinking her customers only wanted snacks they could easily recognize. This theory was soon proven wrong, however, when a batch of homemade hummus she brought in on a lark instantly sold out. Recognizing that people were interested in exotic offerings, Ramli and her family changed their entire business. They now serve up Mediterranean eats such as crispy falafel pitas, creamy baba ganuj, and kefta kabobs shaved right off the spit. The shop’s BYOB policy allows clients to crack open a bottle of their favorite beverage as they bite into hummus-topped falafels and enjoy the view from their exotically decorated booth.
