A Sandwich a Day: Kafta Kebab at Duzan

In this great city of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around New York. Got a sandwich we should check out? Let us know. —The Mgmt.

Though I'd recommend the chicken shawarma to first-time visitors at Duzan, the ground lamb Kafta pita ($5.75) is definitely worth an order for those whose tastes veer more towards red meat. Where the chicken is bright with coriander, the lamb is deeply charred on the grill. It's warming, cumin-heavy, and juicy enough to keep you coming back for more. Add in Duzan's fresh, poofy pita—some of the best in the borough—and you have the makings of a fine lamb-y lunch indeed.
