Made-from-scratch Middle Eastern food from a Kendall College grad.
Until Kendall grad Daniel Sarkiss opened this counter-service joint, Bridgeport was probably the last place you'd dream of finding authentic Middle Eastern food. And while you'll see no Iraqi sheep's head, trotter, or stomach stew specials, and Sarkiss griddles his shawerma instead of spinning it on a trompo, the attention to detail and complexity of nearly everything he does—from the freshly turned-out pita to light, fluffy, freshly fired falafel to the herbed fries with kalamata aioli to the big, meaty salads bowls and grilled meat platters with roasted vegetables—rivals and even exceeds far older and more venerable spots in ethnic enclaves like Albany Park and Bridgeview. There are additional locations in North Center and McKinley Park.
