Amsterdam Falafel

Last night I got some really great falafel at Amseterdam Falafelshop in Adam’s Morgan.  It’s a really cool concept – you get a pita (if you can eat one), filled with 3 or 5 falafel balls, and then they let you go to town on the toppings in a topping bar.  With 21 toppings, to be exact.

They also have fries, but they’re not handcut, so I steered away from them.  They do fry them in a dedicated fryer.  There was actually a woman there who was gluten intolerant who was buying them, and swore to me that she didn’t have a reaction when she ate them, but I followed my new pitfall avoidance plan and just ate my falafel, which turned out to be more than enough food.

Yep, that’s slaw, beets, hummus, and falafel balls buried somewhere in there.

Oh, there you are!

One of the best $5 dinners I’ve ever had.  Although next time I will bring my own fork, since they have some weird fork phobia or protest going on where they refuse to offer them.
