When Jack’s Bean Falafel closed it doors in Hongdae late 2014, vegans and non-vegans alike sighed with regret—so fans were overjoyed when they reopened in a new location in early 2015, more ready than ever to serve up their popular falafel wraps, hummus, soups and salads. They make everything fresh to order, so wait times can be a bit long during peak hours—but it’s worth the wait. The hummus is not overly salty, and the falafels are likewise mildly seasoned. Each wrap contains two very large falafel balls, so those of you who prefer more of the crispy, fried exterior may be a little disappointed. But we think the other fillings make up for it, resulting in a satisfying lunch that’s easy to take on the go.
