Like the authentic Israeli street food of Tel Aviv, Sunrise Pita is cheap, fast, fresh, and kosher. Start with protein (crispy, hand made falafels, fresh grilled chicken breast, shaved turkey shawarma, or thick slices of beef shish kebab), choose a bread type (pillowy lafa or warm, fresh pita), and fill it with any of a half-dozen salads and sauces -- tomato and cucumber, roasted eggplant, pickled cabbage, and spiced onions -- plus hummus, tahini sauce, and spicy chili paste. It's messy fare, but you can also enjoy it as a more organized platter ($8.99 to $13.99). Tack on creamy, dill-infused grape leaves (55 cents each) and a dessert of honey- and clove-scented baklava ($1.50) if you've got the room.
