Maoz Vegetarian Berkeley closing this week.
Just ran into the very friendly manager today and he told me that Friday would be their last day of business. Their business had fallen dramatically since UC let out at the beginning of the month.
If you never went there, you missed out on very crispy, mild falafel balls, roasted cauliflower, sweet red beets and spicy cilantro sauce. at bargain prices.
I guess it will be back to Sunrise for me.
Eh. Maoz never impressed me.
Sunrise has more consistently good falafel. Fa-La-La had much better pita. Their lemonade & iced tea in the cooler were pre-made with ice making them watery when I tried them.
I did like the toppings bar.
sad to see it go. despite the potential for good business with such a large work and student population nearby, it seems like there are plenty of businesses that come in and out around that telegraph area. i thought that the fact that maoz is a chain would help. thought they had the best falafels -although i agree that fa la la had a much better pita (another casualty).
