Okay so I need to eat a falafel sandwich tonight but have no idea where to go (am new to the city). Where is the best place between 40s-60s & 5-10th or around the area? I refuse to go to azuri based on how rude the owner is so any suggestions besides that one would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks:)

      I believe they have moved to 8th Ave. btw. 39th and 40th. They will put fries in your falafel (or schwarma) for a small extra charge. It is a pocket pita not a wrap/laffa. It is kosher and often described as "Israel-style", but I am not sure exactly where they are from.

          The Azuri guy is not that rude. I wouldn't pass up his falafel for that.
