veg-friendly falafel shop

Tahini offers more than falafel, but it's a small restaurant with a few stools up front and a few small tables in the back, so most people just get falafel to go. Vegan items include falafel, hummus, baba ganouj, and a couple salads. Sandwiches are around $4.50 but they offer a 20% student discount.

I think the falafel here is pretty good. I've eaten here a few times and the flavor has been consistent. I like that in addition to lettuce, tomato and tahini (which is standard), you also can get sauerkraut and hot peppers if you like.

The one thing I don't like about this place is that they have a HUGE outdoor sign that reads "20% student discount" up front, but they only have small signs inside saying that the discount only applies to sandwiches. I ordered a falafel platter and was then told that the discount only applied to sandwiches. I explained to the owner that he should put that on the large sign outside because it's misleading so he reluctantly gave me the platter at the price of a falafel sandwich. I've only ordered sandwiches since then and the customer service has been pretty good.
