  1. Only other place I can think of Myrna's over on East Main.

    1. went to layla's once and not impressed, no need to go back. clapton's version was waaaaay better.

      1. Myrna's falafel is quite different from Layla's--(they'll tell you one is Lebanese, one is Syrian but sorry to say I can't recall which was which), so it's a bit of an apples/oranges comparison. Also note those odd pickles automatically come on Myrna's--they're an acquired taste I've never acquired. Try some of the other dishes at Layla's, (chicken shawarma, kibbee) which I think are better than their falafel.

          I agree that layla's falafel isn't that good. The flavor always seems a bit bland and overcooked. I've tried a few things that were decent, but it's been too long to remember what it is.

          I still haven't gotten to myrna's. shame on me!

        2. I dont like either Myrna or Layla's falafel. However, of the two, I would rather have Layla's. Layla puts too much salad thus making the whole thing a soogy mess. I dont think Stamford has a good falafel place--it would be best to travel elsewhere (NYC) if you want something truly enjoyable.
