Middle Eastern Food at Tony's Clam Shop

We hit Tony's Clam Shop at Wollaston Beach in Quincy last night once again. In the past, I've mostly gotten their seafood, but last night we tried a bunch of Middle Eastern items. The rundown:

-- Falafel rollup: Very tasty, good falafel, though not quite as good as Rami's in Brookline or the now-closed Sepal in Watertown, IMO

-- Kafta: Not for everyone, but I thought it was delicious. Basically, it's three cuts of ground steak with onions, spices, and a variety of peppers mixed in the beef. A bit tough on the stomach, but very nice.

-- Hummus: Not too watery, not too dry, and just the right amount of spices and oil in it. I still like the hummus at Cafe Barada (Cambridge) and Sultan's Kitchen (Boston) better, but the hummus at Tony's isn't bad at all.

So overall, I'd say that the seafood at Tony's is a little better than the Middle Eastern food, but you can't really go wrong with either. BTW, what a nice night it was on Wally Beach last night. They really fixed it up over the past several months. I won't have to worry about crashing my bike into a pole anymore, now that the ancient sidewalk has been replaced.
