We have been to Little Sesame’s other location before but it was our first time at the Chinatown location. We preferred the mezze dishes to the pita sandwich. Service was fine.
Roasted cauliflower, salt roasted onion, charred ramps, sorrel
It was an earthy dish. Sorrel was fresh and tasty.
Eggplant, pickled red cabbage, tahini, schug
We really liked the roasted eggplant so much, next time we want to get two each. Soft roasted eggplant went well with the crunchy cabbage. Tahini provided a creamy bitter goodness. Schug added spiciness.
Pastured lamb shawarma Sumac onions, pea shoots and amba
I asked if they would cut the pita sandwich in half for us. First she said no, then she said she would ask the kitchen. Not only they did not cut it for us but they had no knifes so you could cut it yourself. Great customer service! The shawarma was not what we expected. It was more like a pulled lamb. It was fine but at $12, you could get three eggplant mezze dishes!
