Spices can be added to an order to make it extra hot.  Middle Eastern wraps such as gyro, falafel, hummus, chicken shawarma and beef shawarma are also part of the menu.  Sides and starters include homemade hummus, baba ghanouj, burek (stuffed Pita), feta cheese spring rolls and stuffed grape leaves.  For lighter fare, there is tabouli and greek salads and chicken Kabob salad.  The menu is vegetarian friendly.
