What can you say about a halal place whose specialty is falafel and whose name is Cafe America? Friggin' awesome, that's what. The owner is a Persian woman who dresses like she's about to go clubbing. The cook is Latino. You could technically order a burger or a tuna melt if you want in this office park lunch hole-in-the-wall, but why? Eat up hummus slicked with olive oil and sprinkled with sumac. Take in a beef kabob--tender ground meat bullets you want to swaddle around pita bread. And oh yeah, don't forget the falafel. That would be un-American.
