👋 Hi, it's Sam. Boostan Cafe's chicken shawarma sandwich has been my most purchased food item (sorry coney dog fans) since moving to Detroit last summer.

What's happening: Other than sandwiches, the restaurant offers large portions from a hodgepodge of cultures, including Americanized versions of classic Middle Eastern dishes.

  • Fresh juice is reasonably priced and available by the quarter gallon.
  • I recommend the mango lemonade smoothie.

If you go: The Yemeni-run shawarma spot at Holbrook and Conant in Hamtramck is open daily for takeout and delivery from 9am to midnight.

  • Boostan also has a Detroit location at 5101 East McNichols Road.
