Sepal, Cambridge

Lest anyone accuse me of being a food snob, let me remind you that I will search high and low for good food, even in a mall food court. Sepal used to be a restaurant in Watertown, but is now tucked in to the corner of the CambridgeSide Galleria food court. I’ve read rave reviews about their chicken shawarma, so I convinced Allison to give it a try. The prices are reasonable; sandwiches are $6 and $8 and there are plates for $8+. I had a small chicken shawarma kabab sandwich ($6). There were generous chucks of chicken, topped with a fresh salad of cucumbers, tomatoes and onions, romaine lettuce and fries(??). The chicken was flavorful, but was dry and overcooked – it’s a good thing I got extra tahini sauce. I don’t think the fries added anything to my sandwich. Allison did better with a grape leaves plate ($8). She got the meat version and they were delicious. I would certainly get those next time I’m in the mall and hankering for a bite. Sepal is head and shoulders above the other options in the mall.
