Al-Amir is a tiny little shoebox of a cafe across from the Starbucks on Vine Street. There are maybe a dozen seats so it is a great place to stop by for carryout.
Don't be dismayed if there is a line at the counter (and snaking through the dining space). The food is served up quickly!
I can only attest to the tastiness of the falafel wrap. You get three large balls of falafel in a pita wrap with lettuce, tomato, onions and tzatziki sauce. It's a decent size for lunch and only $5. I always intend to try something else -- maybe next time, I say. But then I convince myself that the fried falafel is somewhat healthier than chicken or gyro, so I stick with the falafel. I do have it on good authority, though, from a co-worker, that the gyros are very good! Some day I will try it for myself.
Most dishes come with the option of getting a platter - a side of fries, rice, or salad. One of these days I will also try the salad there.
