Rainbow Falafel & Shawarma

Tips from foursquare
Falafel's at Rainbow Falafel in Union Sq. (26 E 17th St). Good and CHEAP!
Go to Rainbow Falafel. Get a Falafel sandwich (everything but onions, please!) Spend less than $5 on lunch. Be full and happy.
An honest falafel, unlike the fancy-ass Euro place on the other side of Union Sq.
The enormous vegetarian platter: falafel (4 big balls!), grape leaves, baba ganoush, tabouli, raw onions, and pickled peppers on a bed of tomatoey salad drenched with tahini and hot sauce.
People line up during lunch for the best Falafel in the city. And at $4, it’s the best deal around. Add a side of Grape Leaves or Fried Cauliflower!
