Middle Eastern Food
Taïm, located in the West Village, is an all vegetarian Middle Eastern place with a large menu and very reasonable prices. Their menu includes three kinds of falafel: regular (cilantro & lime), red pepper, and harissa (with Tunsanian spices), Israeli salad, hummus, tabbouleh, pickled vegetables, fries with saffron aioli, and various smoothies (both vegan and non-vegan).
Eat your food inside or take it out to their outdoor patio.
Note: they take only cash.

Totally worthy of the hype. The Green & Harissa falafel are both PERFECT (didn't try the third flavor), and they go so, so perfectly inside the whole wheat pita, with hummus, tahini drizzle and pickled cabbage. I love that the menu is clearly marked with which items are vegan, and which contain egg/dairy (all are vegetarian).
After ordering, the wait was kinda long for a grab-and-go type place, but whatever. Definitely worth it, and fair prices, as well.
Just amazing! I wish I lived closer - though if I did, I'd probably turn into a falafel from eating them too often.
I sampled all three falafels, and all were very fresh and tasty. I couldn't tell much of a difference between the red pepper and the harissa, but the green (with cilantro and mint) was definitely my favorite. The hummus and salad in the falafel sandwich were both good and the pita was really soft and chewy.
Note that the babaganouj and saffron aioli are NOT vegan (both contain mayonaise).
