This Borough Park kosher shwarma outfit overstuffs its pita in the usual fashion, or you can get almost twice as much chicken by ordering a "laff" (a larger flatbread) for a dollar more. Either provides a chance to fill up a small styrofoam plate with items from a more-expansive-than-usual salad bar. The baba ghanoush is thrilling, the fried eggplant and peppers welcome, while the various pickled veggies and slaws are remarkably fresh. Kebabs are another specialty. One afternoon a pile of spicy barbecued short ribs appeared slathered with sauce, some of the most flavorful beef we've had in a while.
