last night i was in davis square and walking passed by Amsterdam Falafel Shop. although i already had din din at Toraya, i still wanted to try it. ive never had falafel before. this was my first time.
‘Falafel is a deep fried ball or patty that is made from chickpeas or fava beans and spices. It is a vegetarian food, and is considered to be a fast food, many times offered by street vendors.
Falafel is served with many types of sauces, including tahini or a falafel hot sauce. It can be served alone, or as in a falafel pita sandwich.’
the menu is very simple. you can either get small or regular and white or wheat. i got the small and wheat since i already had din din. i didnt read the topping strategies til now because i was busy taking pix. man i did not CRUSH MY BALLS lol. make sure you do that so the sauce and get into the balls.
i had garlic sauce and tahini. a lot of toppings to choose from.
im not a big vegetarian person but i did enjoy my falafel a lot!!! even i had a full din din!!! the balls were perfectly fried and the toppings are fresh and tasty!!! i would def get it again if im in the area. they have this store in DC too!!
