Village Voice's Description

Falafels descended on us like miniature spaceships in 1971, when this joint opened. The effect was immediate and lasting. Today there is still a line of cheap Middle Eastern places to prove it. Revisit Mamoun's--where dim lighting and faded ethnographic gewgaws evoke the souks of Beirut and Damascus--to savor an interior unchanged since Dylan sang "Positively 4th Street." You and your date can enjoy a cheap pair of falafel sandwiches slathered with tahini and washed down with steaming cups of cardamom tea. You'll still have money left over for ice cream. There is a second location in the area at 22 St. Marks Place.

Tips from foursquare

  • Cheapism on 12/09/10

    NYC’s best cheap falafel costs $2.50. Also try the pita with baba ganouj or the shawarma sandwich. Careful with the spicy sauce!

    We love the Vegetarian Platter – 3 dishes with tahini dressed salad is the perfect lunch time treat.

  • New York Habitat on 10/21/11

    The city's best falafel and chicken schwarma and the $2.50 price tag can't be beat. Use the hot sauce sparingly though, don't say we didn't warn you!
