The owners of this West Loop eatery hail from Jordan, Yemen and Palestine; so the cuisine--including items like baba ghanoush and a falafel plate--takes its cue from the Middle East. Diners can nosh on homemade hummus and several salads (or, if they're in the mood for a more U.S.-centric sandwich, try a traditional Philly cheese steak). Of course, lamb, chicken and other kabobs, cooked on a metal rod, are also on hand. Place your order at the counter and your meal wil be brought to your high-top table. Half of the dining room offers a view of the kitchen, where you can watch your kabob cook--and until it's delivered, snack on warm pita, brought to each table in a basket when you sit down.
