    I had their falafel sandwiches when they were just $3 (they're $4 now). They're still as fantastic. Add the hummus to your sandwich, too. Btw, conveniently located by Bedford Ave on L train stop :)

    The $3 menu items are now $6, so they probably had a rent increase. $6 is the new $3, long live the $6 (also, it's a lil difficult to slot $6 for food that's not a deli sandwich or pizza)

    The hot sauce is not hot. The pitas are not fresh. But! The falafel are damn tasty and a meh pita with three fat ones + decent hummus and veg is $3.50. Not so meh after all.

    #Paleo folk: sharwarma or mixed grill plate, no pita (and no rice/hummus if you're strict). The red cabbage kraut is probably not actually fermented. But you don't really expect that do you?

    FALAFEL SANDWICH! Think of it this way: where else in willyb (or NYC) can you get something so filling and delicious for just $3? The spicy beets and pickles they include for free are worth $3!

    A rule for NYC falafel is that bigger is always better -that's why the falafel here, which Robert Sietsema called a "beauty",is ranked number 9 on his list of the Best Incredibly Cheap Eats inNYC.

    Falafel sandwich for $3 is the best budget meal in Williamsburg, and if you feel like a baller - get the humus for $0.50 extra.

    This will always be my favorite falafel spot, even though the falafel isn't as good as Mamoun's. The pita sandwich is leagues better and just as cheap, but in my borough. Add babaganoush for 50¢!

    The $6 veg platter has herb-and-chickpea orbs that are freshly fried-they nestle into whatever they're dropped upon, whether it be cabbage slaw, heap of pickles and pickled peppers, or well of tahini
