Run by a lovely Palestinian couple, Abdul and Ayat, this Bay Ridge restaurant serves classics like hummus and shawarma, but make sure to try out some of the signature Palestinian dishes as well, like maklouba (layers of meat, rice, and vegetables flipped upside down) and fattat lahma (six-layer dish of meat, rice, chickpeas, garlic tahini, crispy pita slivered almonds, and mint). Don’t skip out on the za’atar sajj (unleavened flatbread) either.
