….of delicious chickpeas and spices, FALAFEL! Who doesn’t like delicious falafel, complete with tomatoes, onion, tahini, hummus, lettuce, or any of many, many more vegan toppings (10+) at Maoz falafel stand.
Other than the fried in oil bit, falafel is quite good for you, with lots of protein, b-vitamins, & minerals.
The first store opened in Amsterdam in the early 90s, but now they have 25 stores all over the world; France, Spain, Germany, America, and India. My lady friend Janie and I ate there in Amsterdam, right across from Centraal Station, and it was divine. Plenty of spice if you like, and everything is vegetarian, and I believe most toppings were vegan. And to top off a great meal, it was cheap. Tasty, nutritious, & cheap, the trifecta of dining, for me anyway.
Of course in Amsterdam there are lots of reasons to be …uh…hungry, but their other worldwide locations have been quite successful as well, and founders Nachman and Sima Milo plan to be the veg McDonalds, with a goal of opening 1000 locations! We really hope they do, although I have a feeling either Native Foods or The Veggie Grill might get there first, at least in the USA.
