Fresh and cheap Middle Eastern food in Morris County – who would of thought? A tiny storefront across from the Morris Plains train station, Carmel Haifa serves up Mediterranean meats (Shawerma shaved from a spit, kebabs grilled over charcoal) and Falafel in sandwiches and platters, along with Hummus, Baba Ghanouj, salads and soups, and a hearty welcome. I ordered a lamb kebab sandwich, which is very good. The falafel sandwich tasted authentic to me, but needed some more salt, and the tahini (sesame) sauce was a little bitter. Also tried the hummus – very tasty. There are two small tables inside, and two more in front and out back for nice weather. Best to order your food to go.
