I was on a crazy Middle Eastern kick that only lasted this week, but it was
good while it lasted. Nothing beats a shawarma sandwich after a hard day
shopping at the Bay Ridge Century 21 (yet before going to the gym down the
street — there's nothing like doing crunches with a stomach full of lamb).
I've barely delved beyond basics, not because I'm scared of brain or tongue
or anything, but because NYC-style ordering at cramped, busy places like
this frazzle me and I end up blurting out the things I know. I must learn to
slow down and study a menu, no matter how spazzed out this city makes me.

Karam * 8519 Fourth Ave., Brooklyn, NY

    Karam is the ideal pit stop following a Century 21 shopping spree – had the BEST hummus, with their legendary, paradisiacal chicken sharwma and the salty yogurt drink with the green bottle top.

    I’m a born and raised New Yorker, and Karam was one of the best inexpensive lunches I’ve had.

  2. Julie: You just reminded me that I need to get back to Karam again. If you like authentic Sichuan food (nothing to do with shwarma, obviously) Grand Sichuan House behind Century 21 is also great for a shopping break.
