There’s a lot of buzz around Davis Square’s latest addition at the site of the former Wing Works. While the Shawarma Place (201 Elm St.) is new to the scene, its initial Yelp! reviews (“The best shawarma I have ever had”) and steady stream of customers are good signs for the Middle Eastern eatery.

In addition to shawarma, the menu has a variety of vegetarian and meat options, from falafel and mujadara (lentil and bulgur dish) to “kabob” and kafta (ground lamb and beef meatballs). There’s also a mix of soups, salads, sides and of course, baklava for dessert.
