Falafel in Metrowest?

lbfoody Feb 1, 2008 09:25 AM

All this talk about falafel is making me hungry. Is there any good falafel close to Wellesley? Thanks for the help!

      Big Fresh near Walmart between Rte. 9 and Rte. 30 is very good, fresh, mostly organic. It is near Tennessee's and Boston Market, also Filene's Basement.

        Just had their Falafel wrap yesterday and it is excellent! very fresh ingredients and with a slight twist, they incorporate a curried vegetable slaw and optional hot sauce in the wrap as well.

          Thanks for the info. Is that a "wrap" as in a tortilla or Syrian bread?

            Last time I had a wrap, it was decent whole wheat pita. Soft and fresh, not too grainy.

              I generally get the falafel wrap when I go here also, and it's excellent, but I believe they also offer a pita bread falafel sandwich. At first I was wishing they had the syrian bread but this is so good you won't care after having the wrap a couple times. Another excellent item to try is the Tabouli chicken wrap...its hard to go wrong at this place.

            Thanks for the tips. I decided to make my own using a recuoe from the Moosewood cookbook. It turned out pretty good and they were super crispy.
