Choirs used to warm up with a solfège of "do, re, mi, so, ti, fa, la, fel," but messy Pavlovian audience reactions forced them to change their tune. Make tongues sing with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of pita wraps, salads, smoothies, and more at Falafel King on Southwest 35th Boulevard. This Groupon is valid for dine-in and carry-out only.
For more than 28 years, Falafel King has served up a menu of Lebanese cuisine robed regally in kebab, pitas full of veggies and meats, and house-made baklava. Those keen on vegetables can cozy up to a tabouleh salad ($2.75–$5): crushed wheat dressed in a dapper olive oil with lemon juice and sprinkled with parsley pieces, tomatoes, and onions. Pita-wrap packings such as hummus with chickpeas ($4.95), baba gannouj ($4.95), and falafel ($4.95). Meat-craving mandibles can munch on a kafta kabob ($5.50), or gyro ($5.75), while a chicken platter ($7.50) sates a hungry, hungry hypothalamus with two spiced-chicken breasts served atop a bed of basmati rice.
An assortment of fruit smoothies may refresh depleted energy stores with the vitamin-packed power of bananas, blueberries, pineapples, and strawberries blended with juices, milk and honey ($2.95). Finish with a dessert, such as house-made baklava layered with classic walnuts, chocolate, or pistachios ($1.50).
