Big Buns & Pita / Sahara Kabob - Chicago

This clean, no-frills Rogers Park storefront looks like a typical Chicago fast-food joint, in part because it is a fast-food joint. But skip the dogs, burgers and other items on buns for the Assyrian portion of the menu, which offers items like lahmin beajin, a delightful thin, crispy appetizer flatbread, covered with a light, zesty layer of seasoned ground beef mixed with peppers, tomatoes, onions and parsley, served with lemon wedges to squeeze over it, and boorek, described as "Mediterranean egg roll," a fat cigar of meat-filled dough. Don't miss the wonderful "Big Buns homestyle potatoes," crisp sliced rounds in a curried batter.
