Sunday evening Chris and I wanted something quick and easy but also delicious for dinner. I've always walked by Rami's, an Israeli-owned shawarma and falafel place, but have never gone ahead and eaten there. It always seems to be hopping, so we decided to give it a try.
The place is pretty small and the menu not overly extensive, but every day they have a number of specials in addition to their homous, baba ganouch, chicken, shawarma, and falafel combinations. Yesterday they had a number of "cigars" filled with things like kibee and assorted meats. I was a little taken aback by the prices, which seemed a bit much - $10.95 for a pita with homous, shawarma, and an assortment of vegetables, pickles, tahini, and hot sauce. Despite the price, it was excellent - the shawarma was very tender and flavorful and all the accompanying vegetables very fresh and a perfect balance to the hot sauce.
Chris' falafel was somewhat cheaper, maybe $8.95, and accompanied with the same assortment of side items. They were very tasty and not at all greasy like some can be. Overall I had a very nice quick bite to eat though I found the prices to be somewhat unreasonable. Rami's is located in Coolidge Corner on Harvard Street right across from the former Barnes & Noble.
