I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…

Chicken Schwarma Sandwich at KARAM

I really only came out to Karam because I heard the falafel was pretty good. But I should have read the signs and immediately ordered their chicken schwarma sandwich because that’s the thing that makes this Bay Ridge joint a true destination. Succulent pieces of shaved chicken are stuffed into a pita along with pickles, lettuce, and a game-changing lemon-garlic sauce known as toum. Price: $7
