This place is divey and the service is terrible. That said, FALAFEL. Oh, the falafel. This is easily the best falafel I have ever had. It's so perfectly crunchy and spicy and savory. I had the falafel sandwich, and I feel the sandwich itself could be improved upon, but the falafel discs were glorious. We also had the baba ghanoush, which my boyfriend thought was excellent, but I guess I'm just not a huge baba ghanoush person because I found it merely "meh." Bear with me now, because I'm going to tell you the secret to making the best sandwich ever: Step 1: Go to Jerusalem Market and order falafel with that spicy mayonnaise dip, some pita bread, and baklava to go. (Be careful. There is a language barrier.) Step 2: Go home and mix the spicy mayonnaise with another tablespoon of pure mayonnaise. Trust me, it's better. Step 3: Fill your pita bread with the mayo mix, falafel, some feta cheese, lettuce, and tomato. Step 4: Bite into it. Cry, because it's just that good. Step 5: After you've demolished the sandwich, demolish the baklava. This is the kind of falafel one could write sonnets about. So don't let the weird exterior and the tv playing middle eastern soap operas or the oddly placed chandeliers with tacky leather sofas dissuade you. Go here. Do it. NOW!
