Cheap Eats 2011: Habibi

There are only a few good, authentic Middle Eastern places in this town, and Habibi surely figures among them. The downtown Lebanese-Syrian standard, which recently expanded into the space next door and added a second location on Southwest Pine Street, is dependably delicious and reasonably priced. Habibi’s mezza platter ($10.95) offers a fairly comprehensive survey of Near East flavors, from smooth hummus to tangy tzatziki; served with fresh, airy pita, it’s enough to feed at least a couple of people. For your main dish, get a sandwich ($6-$6.50), but stick with something vegetarian—the meat is a bit tough. (Editor’s note: Blasphemer! Order the lamb shawarma!) Round off your meal with a flaky, honey-suffused baklava ($3) and cups of the strong, sweet Turkish coffee ($3.75).
