We all know how much I love Maoz – but until it opens up within, you know, 4 blocks of where I live, I needed an alternative. Fortunately, at some point since I last lived in Washington, Amsterdam Falafelshop opened. Doesn’t this falafel pita look great:
It’s the same concept as Maoz – great falafel and fries, and a huge salad bar of sauces and toppings. Their falafel is more chickpea-y than the more herb-y Maoz approach, but it’s just as delicious. Amsterdam Falafelshop is in Adams Morgan, the neigborhood just north of Dupont Circle. It’s a nice 20 minute walk, with the lovely reward of straight-from-the-fryer falafel waiting at the end. I am particularly fond of the green herb and garlic sauce, which I heap on the falafel, along with yogurt sauce, hummus and cucumbers. The fries are particularly delicious with the garlic cream that is available there. If you are in Washington, DC, it’s definitely worth the trip, and it’s open 7 days a week.
And don’t these fries look great. Yum.
