Falafel Chula in Williamsburg

Anyone been? Any word on whether they bought out Uncle Minna? And I assume it's owned by the fine folks of Taco Chulo?

  1. please tell me mina is not gone! i've been too scared to go in. first they take away hope and union, now uncle mina's. all my favorite union ave restaurants are going down the drain.

    1. Had a falafel deluxe (pita with falafel & eggplant) a couple nights ago. Pretty good quality for $4.50, although I felt hungry 3 hours after dinner. My boyfriend got the schwafel plate (falafel and chicken schwarma) and he wasn't so into the overcooked chicken. I like the new interior which is definitely step up from Mina's dingy space. It's just a hunch I have, but is Falafel Chula owned by the same folks as Taco Chulo?

      1. It is owned by the same folks as Chulo. The other day we got Chula's menu when we ordered burritos. I still haven't tried it, but I'm intrigued by Le Parisian falafel, which sounds like it might take a page from the best falafel I've ever had, ever- L'as du falafel in Paris.... Anyone tried it yet?

        1. Yep, I've been there. I remember it being good, but not mind blowing.

          1. i find it reallly obnoxious that they opened right next door to uncle minna; i don't really feel right in going there. (am i experiencing liberal guilt here?)
