Village Voice's Description

Don't let the address fool you;this tiny carryout (with a few stools) is tucked into an obscure corner of the West Village nowhere near Washington Square. Its genius lies in the fabrication of three types of tiny Israeli falafel;including one made with roasted red pepper and another with harissa;rather than the usual one. Unfortunately, the novelties don't taste all that different. No matter, the accompanying hummus and carefully composed salads are top-notch. Unexpectedly, the french fries served with saffron aioli are killer. Strictly vegan, except for the smoothies.

    Try the green falafel. The crunchy exterior conceals a fluffy core, with a nutty, herbaceous flavor complemented by silky hummus and tahini sauce. It’s one of our #100best dishes and drinks of 2011.
