Albayk San Mateo - for all your shawarma, falafel, hummus, babaganoush and kibbeh needs!

Recently a few of us gathered to sample the menu at Albayk in San Mateo (thanks to pilinut for telling us about this place). The location is a former Quiznos so there's a pizza oven - the owner, Jamal, is trying to retrofit it to bake his own pita.

We shared a meze platter and a lamb/beef shawarma platter plus mint tea, a couple of desserts and Turkish coffee. I thought everything showed careful preparation. Dishes were very flavorful, nicely plated and served. I will add more specifics plus a few photos later today or tomorrow.

But in the meantime, I've started this post and hope the others will add their comments!

Here's a link to their website: http://www.albayk.com/
