It’s been said that sticking to a Mediterranean diet increases your life expectancy. Of course, that’s fully dependent on your ability to refrain from eating multiple pitas in one sitting. Getting its name from Middle Eastern slang meaning “hurry up!,” this quick-service counter, located in Krog Street Market and Tech Square, serves things like hummus bowls and seasonal “salatim” (salads). You’ll find lots of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options here in addition to homemade natural sodas.
