Any GREEN falafel between South Beach and Boca Raton?

Looking for good falafel, must be green inside, and not made with fava beans (egyptian style) only made with chick peas (israeli style)----Taim in New York City is the benchmark..(my favorite falafel outside of Israel)--while I know it's pretty tough to find anything this good...I'll settle for decent, but it's got to be green....last time I visited tried the place on West Dixie Highway (the name escapes me at the moment, Itzak something--but it was uniformly lousy and not too clean and overpiced, and that's being kind)---the Moroccan Israeli influenced Pita spot used to be good, but I know it was sold a long time ago...and haven't been in quite awhile...is their falafel still good? Is it green or the dreaded yellow?
What about Crazee Olive..I read theirs is green..think they're Lebanese...usually the Lebanese make their falafel nice and green..but sometimes they put fava beans (deathly allergic)
Never went to Bisseleh cafe...it apears they are gone or sold? can't seem to get a straight answer from the net..--what is Mimosa Cafe in Hallandale? Cuban Mediterranean?
Used to go to Shalom Haifa off RR tracks in Ojus, but it's gone downhill...and their falafel is nothing special
Is there any good falafel at the Waterways Shoppes? That place is like Tel Aviv with all the Israeli's hanging out there on the weekends...
The place in Loehmann's is not good either--i think it's Pita Plus?
....any help would be appreciated to find FRESHLY made green herb infused falafel and better yet, if they make their own pita or laffa..thank you!!
The falafel at Dimasi Sweets in Sunrise is green inside, but I don't know about the fava content. The owners are Lebanese and the falafel is served with minimal toppings in a lavash wrap.
It's very different from others that I've had, but I really enjoy it. I'd be interested to hear how it stacks up to the others mentioned.
