Small eatery with super-friendly staff. The food is really flavorful and consistently good. We live here and I crave this food! Everything is made from scratch including the flatbread and veges are fresh (watched them buying from the vege truck out front while we ate!)....More

Ali Mama has to be my favorite restaurant in all of SJ. I always get the falafel sandwich and add chicken to it. The staff is always super friendly and efficient. 100% recommend checking it out!

I'd highly recommend this place. These wraps (similar to kebab) are incredible!! I went there a couple of times and it became my favorite place to eat in San Juan! The staff is really kind and the price is relatively low! :)
