Ever since I ate the magnificent falafel at l’As du Falafel (‘Falafel Ace’) in Paris last month I’ve been slightly obsessed with these tasty fried balls.
The falafel, or chickpea meatball, as it was once described (not by me, I hasten to add) is currently top of my food craving list… So I thought I’d try to find out where the best London falafel might be…
The Shortlist (other suggestions welcome)
- Mr Falafel in Shepherds Bush
- Pilpel – St Pauls & Spitalfields
- Pita – Golders Green- not sure about this one anymore – see comment below
- Falafel Queen in Camden, as suggested by @bumbleoreo
In the coming months, I hope to try them all. If you have a favourite, whether it’s on this list or not, let me know.
In other news: falafels may become as popular as curries with Britons, from 2009… Hmm.
