    The simple falafel is experiencing a heyday, and this tiny shop is a clear indication why. Experiment with toppings: turmeric-tinged cabbage and jalapeño-fueled herb sauce are delicious options.

    They only have falafel and french fries so if you're in front of me in line don't ask too many questions.

  • The Feast

    This late-night hangout is far more satisfying than Jumbo Slice. Pile yours high with items from the salad bar, which mercifully isn't priced by weight.

    This place has the best Falfel, my favorite style is to smash your balls, then jam as much humus and tzatziki in it as possible, load on the fried onions, chick peas, tomatoes and Dutch mayo!

    Have your order ready, freddy! White or wheat, small or large felafel. They take euros and give change in dollars. Mind the f/x spread, though

    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.
