STREET-CART CHEF
Yasser Kamel of Sam's Falafel(Liberty Plaza, Cedar St between Broadway and Trinity Pl). Mon--Fri 10:30am--2:30pm.

SPECIALTY
Fluffy pita pockets bursting with crunchy falafel nuggets, grilled onions, fried eggplant, tahini and hummus ($3), served to rushed Wall Streeters

RESTAURANT CHALLENGER
Alfanoose (8 Maiden Ln between Broadway and Nassau St, 212-528-4669). Falafel-stuffed pita topped with lettuce, tomato, pickles and tahini ($5.75)

VALUE
"That's too much. Mine is $3, so $6 is too much for this one."

TASTE
"It's not bad. The difference is in the spices. It's like the general falafel in the city, but it's not the super falafel. To be the super falafel, they need to add more spices. It needs more green stuff, more parsley." Kamel does like the tight wrapping, though. "It is easy to eat."
