L’As du Fallafel, Paris
Sunday, August 21, 2011

Since everything is closed on Sundays in Paris, I thought it would be a perfect day to go try the world famous falafel stand in Paris. My last manager was the first one to describe this magical pita sandwich to me and also requested for one to be fed-ex back to Toronto. I thought, of all the things that you could eat in Paris, why would you want a falafel? Especially when there is no shortage of Middle Eastern restaurants and fast-food shops in Toronto.

L'As du Fallafel. It's a green building located on Rue des Rosiers, in Le Marais (Jewish neighborhood of Paris).

But oh was I wrong! It really was that good. I would choose this over a baguette sandwich any day! Nelson and I shared one falafel and both of us agreed this was the best €5 Euros we’ve spent so far in Paris. See caption for description.

This delicious falafel starts with a warm pita, hummus, lightly pickled red and white cabbage, salted cucumbers, 3 piping hot deep-friend chickpea fritters, repeat all ingredients, and topped off with fried eggplant (my favourite part), creamy sauce and hot chilli sauce (ask for extra, it's not hot enough). Then, try eating all that without spilling it onto the floor.

Be warned, they are closed on Fridays after 6pm and closed all day Saturdays.

Well? Let me know what you think. Write me a comment below!
