Mood rings offer convenient color-coded glimpses into our emotional state: red indicates stress, black suggests anger, and green means rich in vitamins, cellulose, and fiber. Further decode goods of green with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh vegetarian cuisine at Maoz Vegetarian, which is centrally located by Dupont Circle. Maoz is open until 3 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. It is closed on Sundays.
Maoz's menu revolves around a diverse range of vegetables and fresh food prepared from scratch, including sauces and pita bread made in-house daily. Prematurely end hunger strikes with the Maoz royal sandwich meal deal ($8.75), which tops a white or whole-wheat pita with eggplant and hummus, with a plethora of veggie-friendly options available for additional toppings. Meal deals come with Belgian fries, access to the salad bar, and a soft drink—a welcome respite for flask-wielders who generally prefer a hard drink. If you want full custody of just a sandwich ($4.50), try the shaka (poached egg, tomato sauce, lettuce, spices) or the verde (avocado, lettuce, cucumber, roasted peppers, tahini sauce, and cilantro sauce). Diners can completely customize a pita with the salad bar ($4.50), or go with the house favorite, the Maoz falafel ($4.95), which is baked fresh daily and stuffed with flavor fillers of your choice.
Maoz is a casual, walk-up-and-order eatery providing tasty treats for both lifelong vegetarians and recent refugees from the land of red-meat-induced comas. Satisfy a lunchtime or late-night fix, and launch appetite rockets into the falafelsphere, with the vegetarian victuals of Maoz.
- Maoz delivers a satisfying lineup of healthy options. Five hot rounds of falafel are stuffed into pita along with fried disks of eggplant and a dollop of hummus for the Royal Sandwich combo ($8.75), which comes with fries and a drink. Sandwiches include unlimited trips to the salad bar—a nice touch for falafel fans. – Rina Rapuano, Washingtonian
- Oh maoz, I love you, love you, love you and your basement vegetarian haven. I love your green and red sign and your salad toppings bar and your assortment of sauces and salsas. I would live in you, if I could, and eat your falafal every day for the rest of my life. – Zaree G., Yelp
