Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of naturally occurring hummus with today’s deal: for $8, you get $16 worth of authentic Israeli cuisine and drinks at Rami's in Brookline. Buy up to two Groupons to double your falafel intake.
A Brookline staple for the past 20 years, Rami's is the authentically delicious brain baby of owners Rami and Mirav Cohen, Jerusalem natives with a penchant for crispy falafel who serve up fresh, house-made cuisine imbued with the flavors of Israel and the Middle East. This villa of victuals is best known for its crispy, golden falafel; savor the sensation with a falafel and houmos plate ($9.95) or go the extra mile with a falafel, houmos, and salad platter ($12.45). Kabab Yerushaimi—lean ground meat rolled into protein patties—can be enjoyed with houmos in a pita ($13.95), and a grilled chicken, houmos, and salad plate ($16.95) satisfies all human and federal food requirements. If you're already feeling fala-full, savor a hearty schnitzel instead, served with houmos and salad ($14.95), but save room for a dessert of baklava ($4.95)—the honeyfied treat common to numerous Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines, due to its constantly raining from the sky.
Rami's stuffs its no-frills diner environment with the smells of simmering schwarma and falafel—doling out hearty, healthy, and delicious meals that are certified kosher, unlike the hammy acting style of William Shatner. Stop by with a friend, the entire family, or a roving caravan of Civil War re-enactors for a meal at Rami's.

As what he calls a third generation “falafel-teer”, Rami Cohen opened his eatery in 1991, shortly after he and his wife Mirav relocated from Jerusalem to Boston. Over two decades later, the Cohens are still crafting kosher Middle Eastern specialties, earning praise from publications such as the Boston Globe, which writes that “what the restaurant does it does very well.” Cooks stuff golden-fried falafel, marinated turkey shawarma, ground beef kabobs, and grilled chicken inside fluffy pitas with homemade babaganoush and hummus or splayed across a platter with a fresh salad. Guest can order their feast at the counter and take a seat inside the small restaurant, or arrange for pick-up or delivery and enjoy their meal in the privacy of their neighbor's treehouse. Rami’s also offers catering, and sells hummus, babaganoush, and tahini by the pound.
