I’ve written about this place before, but I didn’t have any good pictures of the food. Now I have good pictures but not much to say.
I always order the Mama’s Platter, which is more food than the average human needs. Even though it’s more traditional to eat falafel as part of sandwich – “the cheesburger of the Middle East” – I like using a fork. Because I’m a rebel.
Here’s what comes with the platter:
- Veggies – diced tomatoes, diced cucumbers, and pickled cabbage
- Falafel – eight nicely fried balls of chickpea meal
- Hummus – with a little bit of tahini sauce
- Pita bread – not pictured, but homemade and excellent
The only thing I don’t get is why Mama’s uses styrofoam trays. Aren’t vegetarians and environmentalists supposed to be best friends?
