Falafel: Middle Eastern Energy on the Go
Check out Groupon’s examination of a Middle Eastern staple—falafel—to understand what makes this concoction so iconic.
Falafel is fast food in its purest sense. In a flash, the chef scoops out a ball of chickpeas (or in some areas, fava beans) ground with herbs and spices and drops it in a fryer until it turns golden brown. Influencing this swift process may be old family recipes, national traditions, and abundant variations, but all appetites agree on a unified ideal: a hot, crunchy crust and a moist interior. On a sandwich or a meze platter, the spheres are packed with protein and ready to pair with fresh toppings.
Most food historians trace falafel’s origins to Egypt, but that hasn’t ended a longstanding controversy over its proper home. Israelis have appointed the kosher-friendly meal their national dish, which has drawn the ire of those who see it as an essentially Arab food. In 2008, the Association of Lebanese Industrialists even filed a lawsuit against Israel for promoting what it considers a Lebanese trademark.
A Chat with Deluxe Cafe & Lounge
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our meat is tender, and the best you will ever have! Our recipes are passed down from generations. All our customer's have left reviews that our food is not comparable to other Kebab places.
What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?
One of our most popular offerings are our Deluxe Lamb Chops which have been our number one seller since inception. It is prepared the same way all our meats are prepared - on our state of the art barbecue pit under a fire for 15 minutes and marinated in our secret sauce for 48 hours.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
As a middle eastern family, most of our time is spent either in a kitchen or dining room eating with our friends and family. One day we looked at each other and said "Why not open a place with good food and a family friendly environment for everyone" and as a result - Deluxe Cafe was born.
What do you love most about your job?
Meeting all our new customers and spending time with each and every one of them while they have been here. We strive ourselves on customer service and making sure NO ONE leaves our premises unhappy.
