The Falafel Factory
Though some customers flock to The Falafel Factory for its glatt kosher status—a more rigorous form of kosher meat preparation—most people tend to stop by for the authentic Middle Eastern flavors. The chefs' specialty is their chicken shawarma, which they roast on a vertical spit, carving off sections of meat whenever they need to make a pita sandwich.
When they're not layering their shawarma onto pitas slathered with hummus, they create seasoned kebabs and vegetarian falafel, all of which are served on a pita, baguette, or plate. The plates—which contain more Middle Eastern flavor than the Lifetime movie: _Not Without My Doner (Kebab)_—also hoist sides such as rice or fries, an Israeli salad, tahini, and a pita.
The chicken was very tender, seasoned tastily and the sauce and vegetables included made it even more awesome.Brian H., Yelp, 1/27/13
