    Now that there's one in Somerville it's a little less exciting, but delicious nevertheless :)

    Great falafel. Cooked to perfection. Love that you can do your own toppings. The eggplant is amazing and the garlic cream. Definitely only order one fries between two. Grab a table when you can.

    Best food after you hit Adams Morgan on a weekend, delicious toppings for Falafel

  • Matt B.

    Much better than jumbo slice. The small is always big enough for me; the large is huge.

    Best falafel. I used to have the ones at La Shish in Dearborn, MI. These are just as good in a different way. Great fries too.

    They take euros. Also, each falafel is made to order so keep an eye on which one is yours!

    Takes you back to Amsterdam for sure! Abundance of garnishes. Go for the beeteoot and chillies. Belgian style fries seal the deal.

    Crush the falafel balls and layer the toppings on flat. That way you get a bite of all the toppings in each bite.

    Try the Falafel Sandwich - They give you falafel and a pita and you get to load it up with as much hummus, tahini, and other assorted toppings as you want.

    Awesome late night spot in AdMo! Make sure you get those toppings to the bottom of your pita so you don't end up with a dry second half of your falafel!

    The best Falafels I've ever had! The regular one is for someone that is REALLY hungry, if you're not try the small one instead.

    Eduardo Labanca · April 21, 2013
  • Brent V.

    I use the holes in the tables to hold my cone of fries... I don't know if that's right, but it works.

    Falafels here are the best I've EVER had. And I've eaten my fair share. Super crowded. But that means it's good. Next time I won't order fries. Falafel is enough. Can't wait to go back.
