Famous NYC Falafel

Mamoun's is a Middle-Eastern take-out restaurant famous for its falafel. The original location is near Washington Square Park but they opened a second location on St. Marks. They offer falafel sandwiches for $2.50, and also have a number of other vegan items, including stuffed grape leaves, baba ganouj, tabbouleh, and stuffed eggplant.

This location, like the original, is very small, so it only has seating for about 6 people. They also have a table out front during warmer weather.

I just had the worst falafel experience at Mamoun's St. Marks the other day. I made such a huge mess and it was a total disaster. The taste of the falafel was okay, but not spectacular, but I guess that's what you get for $2.50. I actually had hummus with my falafel so it was $3.

What really got me was how sloppy the sandwich was. Granted, falafel isn't meant to be a super neat food, but I was really astounded with how messy this was. It seems like with every single bite I took, a few pieces of lettuce and tomato fell out. I was sitting at the table out front and I made a huge mess all over the table and on the ground. It just seemed like a poorly made sandwich (and I used to be a Sandwich Artist at Subway, so I am a real expert :) ). I also got a nice big hot sauce stain on my pants. Unfortunately, as there were no napkins inside I couldn't clean up my mess. It was pretty embarrassing but as I was alone, I just got up and walked away like nothing happened. :)
