        My answer as well. Just went there today to the Macdougal St. location. Best deal around.

          Do people really prefer Mamoun's to Bereket? Mamoun's is one of my go-to spots, but I think Bereket is the best middle eastern takeout in NY.

            I haven't been to Bereket in years. At Mamoun's I usually get a humus, tabouleh, sandwich, hold the lettuce, but with everything else. I love their hot sauce, and the humus is lemony just the way I like it. When I do get falafal I like these since they are not overly spiced, crisp on the outside and moist on the inside. The only complaint, the pita isn't anything out of the ordinary. + it's 3.25 for my combo.
