Banzo Shük dishes pack a Mediterranean punch
Fill up on Falafel: Dive into this batata bowl of mixed greens, chickpeas, Kalamata olives, homemade sumac dressing and feta cheese topped with sweet potato falafel.

What began as a single street eats stand has become a Mediterranean cartel: a second Banzo food cart, sit-down dining on the north side and now another restaurant on the east side.

As with its counterparts, the short menu at Banzo Shük on Williamson Street is inspired by Israeli fast-food favorites. Prepared with fresh ingredients and lots of imagination, they’re serious eats. Falafel, lamb and beef kabobs, roasted chicken or daily specials come on pita or a platter with rice and hummus. The batata salad packed with sweet potato falafel, veggies, greens, olives and house dressing makes a hearty veggie feast. When it comes to flavors, none are bigger than Banzo’s.
