The menu features a lineup of items and a customizable format. Bases include saj (or pita bread), rice, couscous, or lettuce, which can be topped with steak or chicken shawarma, falafel, or chicken kabab. Toppings include everything from diced salad, cabbage, and sumac onions to carrot salad and pickles.
