I'd like to recommend 2 Mideastern places

Both of these are in Niles. One is fast-food atmosphere: a few tables but nothing fancy. Pita Town is the name. Believe it serves Assyrian food. Good shawarma and falafel. $2.15 for a falafel sandwich and a drink. yum. Located at Ballard and Milwaukee.

Also, the newly renamed Sphinx Cafe (same owners, just dumped their inherited name). These folks are Egyptian. Excellent baklava (the best!) moist and small bites. Also the meaty dishes are good Kabobs and shawarma and the hummous is a dream. They are on Milwaukee south of Dempster.

Hope you like them...
