Bites 2013: Lamb Shish Kebab Sandwich

A fluffy warm pita wraps around lettuce, tomatoes, tangy pepperoncinis and big lamb kabab hunks, pink-in-the-middle and juicy. There's some hummus for sesame smack, but a creamy Italian-esque sauce provides the real zesty element that's perfect with the lamb's gaminess. ($6.99)

Best Of 2009: Middle Eastern

We could write this whole paragraph describing the tumultuous history of Heart of Jerusalem Café. In fact, it would wrap up nicely with an explanation of how the downtown location became Taste of Jerusalem following the summertime split between former partners Hussein Abukhdeir and Abdul Nasser. Most of you, however, care less about this Middle East conflict than you do about the flavorful falafel, wonderfully garlicky hummus and aptly named crisspura fries that you can get at both locations. As has been documented, the Springs has no shortage of Middle Eastern restaurants; winning this category means that even if they've done each other wrong, Abukhdeir (at Austin Bluffs) and Nasser (at Bijou) have done something right. — Kirk Woundy
