Kam-Moon brings Mediterranean eats to Brunswick Street

New restaurant alert.

When Hossam Ramadan says fast food, he's not talking about the junky kind that usually comes to mind. The operations manager at the brand new Kam-Moon says the restaurant aims to “introduce the best of the Mediterranean cuisine” and do so for an affordable price, but the speedy nature doesn’t mean there’s been any rush in concept or creation. “We wanted to redefine the fast food industry with homemade recipes.”

The 2013 Brunswick Street (next to Inkwell Modern Handmade Boutique) spot soft-opened today, bringing tastes from Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco, Greece and Turkey to those looking for a quick and healthy bite. But what sets it the apart the most is the ridiculously fresh bread—baked in-house pita. Egyptian pita pockets—which are similar to the Lebanese kind we’re familiar with, expect thicker—are better known as eish, meaning “to be alive,” says Ramadan. “You walk around the Egyptian markets and it’s what you can smell, it’s really popular there. A lot of people depend on that bread to go through their day.”

Kam-Moon’s pitas will be packed with a variety of fillings (like falafel, kofta and calamari) and will be served from when the early morning baking finishes to around 10pm. And if you’ve got room for dessert Ramadan suggests trying the tulumba, which he likens to a Turkish churro. Um, sold.
