Best Falafel in Brooklyn

I submit that the best is Amnon's, with Famous Pita a close second. Any opinions?

  1. I know that you are asking about Brooklyn. However, I wanted to mention that Naomi Levy's in Queens has the best falafel that I have ever had in the New York metro area. I have not had falafel in the two establishments that ariellasdaddy mentioned.

      have to agree Naomi's has the best kosher falafel in the area

        Is that Naomi's Pizza on Main St. near Super Sol? If so, yes, yes, yes the falafel is absolutely the best!

      2. In Brooklyn I am a big fan of Olympic Pita on Coney Island Avenue between L & K. Best in NY area - by far Moishe's Falafel on 6th & 45th (haven't been there for a while, but I hope its still there).


        1. I think that the House of Pita on 48th Street in manhattan is excellent... and I know that Ronit and Marty make it from scratch every day and throw out the oil from the deep fry first. That is probably the main difference between the good, the bad, and the ugliest heartburn of your life. If the spicing is just right for you... that is falafel! MMMMM

          1. Try Pizza Time on Ave. J - delicious Israeli style falafel balls

            1. tov taam on avenue p bet. 5 & ocean pkwy has the crispiest, spiciest (and oiliest) falafel balls, which is why they're awesome. speaking of falafel, i noticed that they annexed off the quik-e-mart on j and e16 and put up a huge sign "FALAFEL STOP" coming soon. anyone know what that is? will it be kosher?
