King Restaurant Falafel - W. Roxbury

We were in W. Roxbury on Sat. and noticed a new Lebanese place where Samia's used to be. Tried the falafel. They press the wraps in a sandwich press, which crisped up the pita and wilted the lettuce, neither of which I viewed as a plus. The falafel itself was a bit heavy handed with the coriander, but had a reasonable texture. The sandwich was also overly packed with soggy dill pickle strips, which gave the sandwich an overall vinegary taste and completely covered up any vestige of the tahini sauce. I don't know how the kebab and other meat offerings may be, although I noticed that all sandwiches were being subjected to the aforementioned pressing, so maybe plates would be the way to go here.
