After hundreds of drive-bys, I finally made it over to Shawarma King on Beacon St. in Brookline and I’m sure glad I did! I can’t believe it’s taken me until my fourth and last year at BC to make it to this Lebanese gem. Every time I pass by, the place is hustling and bustling with people, hands and faces full of falafel, shawarma, hommous and everything else delicious.

I also tried the Baklava fingers–a bit sweet but nonetheless flaky, crunchy, nutty and the perfect finish to a wonderful lunch on a sunny friday afternoon.
