When Mohammed and Nesrine Hawari came to the United States from Israel, they packed more than just clothes in their suitcases. Their most important item was actually a stash of family recipes, a tome that led to the couple opening Kareem's Restaurant. The eatery has since earned numerous awards, including best falafel sandwich in 2012 from OCWeekly, who which described the dish as “emerald-green and poofy on the inside, dark-brown and crunchy on the outside.” Chefs tuck the balls into warm pita pockets or serve them alongside creamy hummus and bite-size bits of sautéed lamb. For other plates, chefs bake whole fish, and skewer morsels of grilled beef and chicken with metal rods or tiny pirate swords.
