Access Atlanta helps residents find the best of anything from movies, plays, attractions, historical locations and, of course, some of the best dishes and restaurants around. This month, the Atlanta Journal Constitution posed the question, ‘Who makes the best falafel’?
What is falafel? It is a Middle Eastern food, a fried patty or ball made of ground chickpeas or fava beans. It is usually served in pita bread but it can be enjoyed on its own or coupled with vegetables or hot sauce. It’s a popular street food in large cities like New York and Chicago.
Responders to the Access Atlanta post mentioned Falafel King, near Emory, Café Agora off of East Paces Ferry and Pita Palace, off of Lavista. Many said that in order to have an authentic and delicious falafel, the dish needed to have a crispy exterior and warm moist interior that seems to melt in your mouth.
