Falafel Corner?

Just heard that Falafel Corner has opened in Harvard Square. I believe the address is 8 Eliot Street, but I'm not 100% sure about the street number. Has anyone heard anything about this place?

  1. Yes, that's the address - it's in the little store front where Greek Corner used to be, couple of doors down from Charlie's. But it did not seem open yet on Sunday. (free chairs on the sidewalk). Do you know anything about it?

      No, this is the first I've heard of the place. I know that Greek Corner had closed awhile ago (as had Shabu Square nearby), but hadn't heard about this new place. I'll try to find out more tomorrow.

        I posted about this place going into the old Greek Corner II spot a while ago. Noticed a banner across the front this morning saying OPEN UNTIL 3:00AM!

          allow me to curl up in a ball and cry after learning the news that greek corner 2 has closed.

            No joke. I will miss their gyros and the nice guy with the goatee who was always behind the counter.

        I checked the place out last night (didn't eat, as I was stuffed to the gills from Fat Cat in Quincy earlier in the evening). The place is tiny, with an ordering area upstairs and a rather dank, gloomy dining area downstairs. They feature Halal food, and the menu is full of rollups, dinner plates, and Middle Eastern appetizers. Only two items on the menu are more than $7.00, which is very reasonable, considering that includes full dinners such as chicken shawarma and fish kabobs.

        I'll try to get there when I'm less full!

      3. I had a falafel roll up for lunch today and it was really good. Not as good as Eastside Pockets in Providence, but really tasty. You can't beat a good sandwich for under $5 in Harvard Square.

        1. Well! I had been planning on a couple squares at Pinocchio's after i get my hair cut tomorrow, but it looks like felafel instead!

          1. I hope it's good - the last couple of times I got falafel at Moody's I was quite disappointed

            1. Is Sabra still around the corner?
