Where's the really good falafel in this town?

I haven't had falafel since I moved to Boston. Back home in Montreal there was a falafel stand on every corner. Here, I'm lost falafel-wise. Any advice would be appreciated.
Is Mr. Pie on Cambridge St. any good?
Try Cafe Jaffa on Gloucester st. in the Back Bay.
They serve the falafel in a wrapped flat pita rather than a circular one, debate over this could be a seperate thread.
The falafel balls are homemade, salad is fresh, and the tahina has the right flavor.
King Tut Coffeeshop, a block up from the Brookline Village T-stop, almost across the street....Esp. wonderful with hot peppers and tahini; a fabulous hangover cure!....Only open weekdays; I'll have to check on Saturdays.....
sultan's kitchen. 72 broad st., downtown.
the jaffa is okay, and the mit trucks are really pretty perfunctory, but ozcan's version is glorious (as is everything else there -- esp. the rice pudding).
