Relatively inexpensive, good food. What more can you want?!
We visited Mamoun's about two months ago, and I swear the wonderful flavors are still lingering in my mouth. Here's a breakdown of what we ordered and what we liked the best:
Chicken Shwarma Plate: Although it was definitely very salty, the chicken remained the highlight. It was fragrant and incredibly tender. Our sides included falafel, tabbouleh, and rice; the dish came with a side salad and pita.
I was really excited about the falafel, but unfortunately, it wasn't that great. I think my opinion of a falafel has been too heavily influenced by the falafel that I get at a campus restaurant (the inside is basically soft hummus while the exterior is crispy). Mamoun's falafel was rather dry and mealy on the inside; nothing totally wrong but not what I prefer.
The other sides were pretty standard; nothing in specific jumped out at us.
My dad also ordered a plate (lamb? I'm not sure!) with a side of pickles (he, my brother, and I share a love for pickles), grape leaves, and falafel.
My brother got a sandwich with some kind of lamb (they have three versions, so one of the three!). He was definitely pleased with what he ordered :)
And now...for my favorite part of this meal: the mambrumeh
"Filo dough with pistachios, walnuts, and almonds soaked in honey" --- do I need to say more?
