Just wanted to say that I tried this new place in Forest Hills, just north of Metropolitan Avenue called Wafa's Authentic Mediterranean Food. It is a Takeout & Catering place with excellent freshly prepared food on the cheap. Nothing on it's menu is over $8..
They have soups(Split Pea and Chicken), Tabouleh, Hummus, Babaganoush, Mousabaha and three types of pies (Meat, Cheese and Spinach) and along with Falafel, Chicken or Lamb Shawerma and Kibbe. Desserts include Baklava and Rice Pudding.
I wanted to post this because it is slightly off the beaten path (Metropolitan Avenue) at 96-08 72nd Avenue.. Not sure of the hours but the # 718-263-2757.
The quality of the food is great and the prices are probably this low because they just starting out and the location. I highly recommend dropping in and trying some of their delicious take out.
