City Pages's Description
Erica Strait's falafel empire has expanded from a farmers market stall in 2010 to a food truck and now to a restaurant. Foxy Falafel is her new Middle Eastern restaurant in St. Paul. As the name implies, falafels are the centerpiece of this new South St. Anthony Park restaurant on Raymond Avenue. As with her farmers market stands and food truck, Foxy Falafel’s restaurant menu is very friendly to vegetarians, vegans, and the gluten/dairy intolerant, but meat-eaters will find something to love here too. Using proteins and produce from local organic farms such as Shepherd's Song, Bossy Acres, Kadejan, and Tiny Planet, Strait puts a delicious, sustainable twist on Middle Eastern fare. The ordering process is fairly straightforward but offers several make-it-your-own possibilities. First, choose your type of falafel: Foxy (traditional), curry (Indian spices mixed in, and the favorite of every staff member we asked), or beet (seemed to come through more in color than in flavor). Next, choose your delivery method: sandwich, salad, or platter. Then select a sauce (we liked the green tahini). As for meats, you can't go wrong with the turkey shawarma, chicken gyro, or the lamb burger.
Tips from foursquare
One of the best post-holiday eats! For the really, truly good gluten-free cookies alone, Foxy Falafel is worth a stop.
Excellent, flavorful and healthy, hip young owner, fairly priced! Win-win:)

Stoplight falafel salad is my favorite!
What's not to love about this local and woman-owned business that sources ingredients from local and organic farms? Now that's foxy! And, don't forget the green tahini.
