New Felafel place in Adams Morgan
Hey, have been absent on the board lately, but just wanted to let you know about a great new felafel place a friend introduced me to in Adams Morgan. Jerusalem Cafe, or Jerusalem something, right on Columbia Road just east of the intersection with 18th Street. It's the same set-up as Amsterdam Felafel (you get to add all the toppings you want from the salad/pickles bar) but it's *much* better. I was really impressed by the quality and freshness of all the fixings and the freshly fried felafel. My friend claims it's also cheaper than Amsterdam Felafel.
I am totally psyched about this addition to the neighborhood. It was really great.
Oh, they also serve schawarma and various kebab/rice plates...
I have been there and I don't think that their actual falafel has the best flavor. I don't think there are enough spices before frying. I think Amsterdam is better. On the topping front however, their pickles are superior to Amsterdam. Their fries remind of elementary school cafeteria fries in a very bad way.
Agreed - I think Amsterdam Falafel is better than this shop, and I TOTALLY got that cafeteria vibe! They use those cafeteria plastic trays... and have that cafeteria rack-think that you slide your tray into when you're done....
Also, I was not such a fan of their hummus. I am particular with how I like mine to taste. I am sticking to Amsterdam; I would not go back to this other place.
