Any decent falafel in NoVA? Especially Springfield area, but any place in NoVA is fine.

  1. Several good places are:

    Lebanese Butcher in Falls Church, which has the best of the lot.

    Arax on Lee Hwy in Arlington. It's just a small sandwich place with a couple of tables. I suspect if you want just felafel without the pita and trimmings you can get it.

    Jerusalem just off rte 7 in Bailey's Crossroads. Used to be second to Lebanese Butcher, but the place has been slipping lately.

    Layalina on Wilson Blvd in Arlington has an acceptable version. At lunch a sandwich comes with pretty good fries. It's been about a year since I've had it, though.

    Lebanese Taverna has it of course. Although I don't care for it in their restaurants, the one from the Lebanese Taverna market is acceptable. It's near where Lee Hwy and Old Lee Hwy split.
