Cavernous restaurant that serves some of the best falafel and meze in the city. Stop by for a cheap lunch or catch one of the evening music events
Lunching at Falafel King is a bit like eating lunch in Aladdin’s cave. The Moroccan lamps, mosaic-topped tables, low ceilings and shisha pipes certainly make you feel like you could be in a cavern in a faraway land.
The food doesn’t disappoint, either. The counter is full to the brim with freshly chopped salads all lined up and waiting to be added to your order. The menu is up on the blackboard, but any frequent visitor knows it off by heart. The falafel comes highly recommended, served in one of their own-baked Abu Noor pitta breads, smeared liberally with fresh hummus, chopped salads and topped with pickles and the sauce of your choice. If you don’t fancy falafel, the sabich (egg and aubergine) wrap is equally tempting, while the meze is big enough to share. There is also a daily soup and frittata to choose from.
Order your lunch and a cup of fresh mint tea (other drinks are available), spend just over a fiver and return from your lunch break feeling like you’ve been on holiday. Keep an eye out for evening music events that take place in the cavern downstairs.
