Falafel is an ancient dish that has been popular in Egypt and now the rest of the Middle East. The history of falafel goes back to the days of the pharaohs. The name most likely devise from the Arabic word for spicy, Mefelfel.
The Copts, an Egyptian Christian sect, also claim to have invented the ta’amia, the fava-bean fritter that is parent to the falafel. It is believed that falafels were invented in Alexandria. Since Alexandria is a port, sailors from all over took the delicious little patties home, and eventually falafel became popular fasts food all over the Middle East.
Accordingly, Middle Eastern Jews overwhelmingly favored chickpeas solo in their falafels. An early Middle Eastern fast food, falafel was commonly sold wrapped in paper, but not served in the familiar pita sandwich.
Beginning in the 1950s, Yemenite immigrants in Israel took up making falafel to earn a livehood, utilizing the chickpea version common in the Levant and transformed this ancient treat into the Israeli national street food.

Probably one of the best orders I've placed in a long. Apart from the fact that it has the best pita pockets I've had (even bakeries around mumbai don't have what these guys offer). The service was spontaneous, food hit the mark perfectly.
I ordered just 1 dish and it was enough to judge this place. The 'Hummus with Falafel' was a superb treat I would say. Very well prepared and ingredients just about the right amount. Makes you dive in on seeing it. Definitely gonna visit for wraps next time.
Falafel is a Middle Eastern delicacy which i personally LOVE a lot. I always have the Original Falafel from their menu and every time i travel back to the Middle East.
