Middle Eastern food on Main street in NJ

Hi, I'm trying to find some restaurants on Main Street around Jersey City, NJ. Would anyone be able to recommend where that is and any restaurants to try? I know there's a Middle Eastern community in Jersey City close to Journal Square but I can't remember specifically where. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

  1. There is a small cafe called Two Aprons, but their food is amazing. So far I've tried the Turkish sandwich, Lebanaese Sandwich, and the rotisserie chicken with rice pilaf (raisins & vegetable). Everything is so delicious and unique. You can't find their recipes anywhere else. It's not your regular chicken schwarma. They use paninis made from Spinach, tomato and wheat. It is also organic!
