Curbside Takeout: Shish Mediterranean in St. Paul

Jason’s verdict: perfect for a family meal (or if you’re just craving juicy chicken)

Shish

First, dine-in closed. Then, nearby Macalester College closed. A normal business owner would be in crisis, but Leo Judeh quickly introduced family-style platters in the restaurant and started making meals for St. Paul school kids, available through his Fare Well food truck.

The platters are delightful: $40 gets you a pound of gyro meat, another pound of saffron rice, and a family salad. The $35 chicken shawarma meal is made even more delicious—juicy, flavorful chicken—topped with an addictive curry tahini.

Shish hummus

Leo’s hummus is the base for Chickpea, the hummus bowl spot at the new-ish Potluck food hall in Roseville Center, and it’s creamy perfection.
