M.A.M.A.S World Take-Out is in an industrial building so far off the beaten path you won't stumble upon it on your own. The funky, strictly take-out eatery (you can dine on the front loading dock in warm weather) offers a plethora of different cuisines. The name is an acronym for Middle-Eastern, American, 'Mexican(ish)' Asian and Salvadoran. This literal hole-in-the-wall opened in September 2014. Owner Mark Friedman isn't a newcomer to food, though. His company, The Providers, has sold prepared foods to local markets since 1999. Signature dishes include deep-fried hotdogs (a holdover from Friedman's New Jersey roots), along with a classic Italian hero; Chicken Shawarma; Burmese Crunchy Ginger Salad, pupusas and a perfectly-fried falafel. Friedman is passionate about food; if you love eating, you'll have a great time talking with him. At the moment, except for a few seats on the loading dock in warm weather, it's strictly take-out.
