Kamal’s looks more like a mini-market than it does an actual food stand, with shelves full of Middle Eastern spices and ingredients. So a lot of people walk right by without even taking a look at the menu plastered behind the counter. But you shouldn’t, because their homemade falafel, served on pita with chopped lettuce and a spread of hummus is a simple but great lunch. There’s also an eggplant stew that’s rich and savory, or if you can’t make up your mind, you can get a mezze plate with a bunch of different Middle Eastern salads and dips.
