Israeli Street Food in NYC

Shimon Maman’s , whose décor includes streetlamps imported from Tel Aviv, has opened a to-go operation called The Kiosk.

It’s billed as New York’s answer to the Israeli falafel stand, and it’s slinging up street food such as pita with falafel, kebabs, the eggplant sandwich sabich, bourekas and house-made hummus.

12 Chairs Kiosk, 342 Wythe Ave., Brooklyn
