The Lebanese stylings of Garlic ‘n Lemons, a new (as of April) place in Allston, are fine enough to have Allstonian declare, “This place is a gem.” And how does Allstonian love Garlic n’ Lemons? Let us count the ways.

Roll-up chicken shawarma, upgraded to better bread for a buck, was the best Allstonian’s companion had ever eaten. Jallab, a drink made with a syrup of dates, grape molasses, and rosewater, was “very tasty,” and baklava was “fresh and buttery and blessedly NOT tooth-achingly sweet.” lmuller adds that the rice and lentils and tabouleh “tasted just like gramma’s!”
