Austin, Texas

International Vegetarian Falafel Chain

Maoz Vegetarian is an all-vegetarian (and nearly all vegan) falafel shop that features falafel sandwiches, salads, and fries. After you get your sandwich, there's a large selection of self-serve toppings - pickles, cucumber salad, roasted cauliflower, dairy and vegan coleslaws, carrots, baby eggplants dyed in beet juice (really), olives, several fresh hot sauces, and much more. The trick is they don't leave very much spare room in your sandwich, so you can't really load up on the condiments.

The first Maoz branch was opened in 1991 in Amsterdam, Holland in order to introduce Dutch people to a new and nutritious vegetarian dish (falafel sandwiches). The Maoz sandwich became a huge success in Amsterdam, leading to the expansion of Maoz both nationally and internationally.

I stopped by this place on a whim, having seen it when I was coming out of the office supply store across the parking lot. I didn't expect much, but the falafels were divine! The woman who was taking orders was polite, helpful, and enthusiastic. It was a lot of fun to select from so many toppings (almost all were vegan!) and to make the pita sandwich exactly as I wanted it.
I ordered the "small" version, and, with the fries on the side, it was plenty for lunch. The falafels themselves are probably the best I've ever tasted in Austin; the fries were good; and the whole wheat pita I tried was absolutely fresh and tasty. The ambience is a little stark inside, but I sat out in the sun in front of the place and had a very enjoyable lunch break.
