The talented cooks at Simply Falafel craft fresh, tasty Mediterranean dishes daily, with an array of veggie and meat-packed options that overstuff their handmade pita-pocket vessels with Greek and Middle Eastern flavors. The eatery’s popular falafel sandwich boasts golden brown falafel balls⎯chickpeas ground with a remote-controlled steam roller, spiced, and fried⎯-packed into a warm pita, filling the pocket’s remaining space with a mix of lettuce, tomato, pickles, and a creamy sauce. Tuna salad ‘wiches deliver the tender white chunk fish fixed with celery relish and mayo, and the vegetable pita envelops a charbroiled skewer of fresh veggies lightly spiced to please waiting bellies.
The kitchens at Simply Falafel whip up nine different meal platters, each kept company by a choice of basmati or majadra rice and cucumber sauce while patrons take their complimentary trip to the salad bar. The gyros platter pits a serving of thinly sliced aged beef against lamb for the amusement of onlooking pita points, and a blackened-chicken-breast platter offers up some tender clucker rubbed in 14 spices before being seared on a white-hot skillet kept sizzling by a rare, imported fire-breathing goat.
