Felled by Falafel

falafelshop.bmpSo apparently everyone and their mom has reviewed the Amsterdam Falafel Shop in Adams Morgan. I walked out of there Friday night saying 'goddamn, someone should do a review of that place' and was promptly informed that everyone has.

Well, if we can't be original, at least allow us to be vocal. This is the best Falafel I've ever had and baby I've eaten falafel in some strange places. The chickpea balls (crunch patties!) are a meal of themselves, the pita toasted, and everything available in small and regular, both of which are actually large. The toppings bar contains old favorites like tomato salad, tahini, and hummus, and more unusual ones like beets and some great spicy green stuff.

The sign on the menu promises no pot in any of the food. The people behind the counter are so friendly you donít believe the sign. Amsterdam Falafel is my new Jumbo Slice.

+5 points if you get the 'crunch patties' reference.

Wow, a Simpsons reference is worth five points? I'll have some flavour sauce with those points, thanks . . .

Actually, Simpsons references are worth gagillions of points, but they might get cancelled out by your Family Guy points.

But was your chef named Christopher? ;-)

I've been updating my DC Dining bookmarks and stumbled upon this site. Will definitely check the falafel place out soon!

I went there last night for dinner before kickball. I had been dying to try it and reading about it here convinced me to go!
I had a small falafel with tons of yummy toppings and small fry. The bf went to Jumbo-Slice - his loss.
Tasty!
