By GUSTAVO ARELLANO Thursday, Aug 21 2003\n\nMy, those pita sandwiches! Non-Middle Easterners think of the pita as limited to falafel, meat and maybe hummus, and most Middle Eastern sandwich shops are content to stuff flatbread with limpid veggies and tahini sauce that reeks of glue. The Hawaris, however, are pita magicians. Take--and eat--the labneh pita, for instance. Labneh is a sort of dairy spread reminiscent of minty Philadelphia cream cheese, a cool, smooth substance that most restaurants overwhelm with meat and lettuce.\n\n Kareem's fabulous falafels--a crunchy, chocolate-brown exterior encasing a soft-as-marshmallow, grass-green interior, not oily at all--come sweating with a nutty sesame sauce. \n\nKareem's hummus by itself is great, chilled with perfect pools of olive oil in the center and enough chili powder sprinkled around to open up the taste buds but not the sweat glands.
