Since beginning with a small falafel stand outside a school in Jerusalem, Falafel King owner Fouad Masroujh has expanded his epicurean empire throughout the Minneapolis area by stocking a menu of pita-packing specialties. Diners at the Central Avenue eatery can indulge in a queen-size dinner of veggie and specialty pita sandwiches, which burst with such ingredients as sliced chicken shawarma and garlic sauce or gyros and tzatziki. Sautéed vegetables stuff the vegetarian pockets, and Falafel King combo platters ($9) overflow with baba gannouj, hummus, and falafel harvested fresh each day from the restaurant's combo-platter trees. Peach curtains spruce up a dining area full of two-person tables and wooden chairs.
From humble beginnings as a child in Jerusalem, Falafel King's proprietor worked his way up from having just a frying pan and gasoline burner to his name to owning a trio of Lebanese eateries. A brightly lit yellow crown draws diners to the Falafel King as surely as the bat signal attracts superheroes and grizzled detectives. Inside the restaurant, pitas ensconce grilled meat filled with Mediterranean spices and crisp falafel sits alongside whirls of hummus.
