Shawafel -- Best Inexpensive Food in the Atlas District

Marty L. | Sep 18, 2011 12:15 PM

Lebanese lamb/beef and chicken shawarma -- made from scratch, not from those gross prefab meat cones; felafel; hummus; labneh; etc. No frills. Just really delicious, fairly-priced food from Alberto Sissi. If and when he upgrades the pita and the drinks, it'll be worth a trip to the Atlas District of its own accord; for now, it's where you should eat if you're in the neighborhood and not at the Atlas Room and not interested in the wait at Toki. (In fairness, I haven't tried Ethopic yet.)
