Maoz - The best falafal place in NY !!!

This is such a great place if u want to have falafal and salads....tiny place but always u can find people packing and taking the falafal or standing and eating there...During summer they take it and eat in the part union square else in winter now it is tuf i know, since there wouldn't be enough place, they might not go or they might just squeeze in and have a quick bite and leave.....what is falafal or felafel or falafel...whtever....well it is a fried ball or patty made from spiced fava beans or chickpeas. A popular form of fast food in Middle east....usually served in pita Maoz...u can also eat it as a salad box...Maoz is a chain of falafel restaurants founded and owned by Amsterdam based Israelis. Now they have in many locations in the world. They are exclusively vegetarian...They have a very small menu, pretty much just falafel, frites and a small salad bar ( with lots of olives,carrots,pickled figs,salsas, roasted broccoli, roasted cauliflower, cucumber, tomatoes and so forth). They have these garlic, yogurt, tahini sauces....I dont like the fries much over there...otherwise u shud visit there see the arrangements and the food....its clean also...but just that they got to make it little bigger...its open very late also...check their website Maoz
