Favorite Falafel

Long ago when I was in college, I had a summer job selling falafel. This does not make me an expert but gives me enough experience to have an opinion on this delicious Middle Eastern fast food. I either eat falafel just as I used to serve it – in a pita pocket with salad and tahini sauce – or as part of a sampler platter with Hummus, Baba Ghanoush and other lovely stuff. Some of my favorite places to eat falafel in the Silicon Valley:

Ziba Persian Cuisine (4628 Meridian Ave., San Jose)

Golden Falafel (883 Hamilton Ave., Menlo Park)

Dishdash Restaurant (190 South Murphy St., Sunnyvale)

Chelokababi Persian Cuisine (1236 Wolfe Rd., Sunnyvale)

    How is Falafel’s Drive In not on this list? Tasty, tasty stuff.

    I agree… Falafel Drive In is the standard around here. :)

    Add my vote for Falafel Drive In, but I have to say that Chelokabi has some of the best Persian food I’ve ever had. YUM!

    Yes, Falafel Drive In has some of the best, and it all works with the banana milkshake!

    I prefer Casablanca in WG to Falafel Drive In.
