It is not easy to find a quality falafel that isn't dry to the point that you need an abundance of sauce to drown out that dryness and give the meal some moistness. Falafels for me need that chick pea taste, and they should be made fresh, I mean that is a given for sure. A great dinner treat for when one cannot be bothered cooking, and for others falafels make for great hangover alternative to traditional fast food.
Have to say that Falafel Extra on Acland Street, St Kilda fits the bill when it comes to tasty, wholesome, filling and fresh falafels. Even just a great locale for vegetarian food. I cannot fault their falafels in any way whatsoever.
Now over to you, where is Melbourne's best falafel establishment? And why is it so great? And why are their falafels so special? Looking forward to discussing.
Falafel House on Toorak Road well exceeds any kebab place I have been to so far. Their light and fresh falafels and creamy hummus are nothing sort of sensational. The guy (Jimmy) who owns the shop provides great service and is only too happy to sit down and have a chat.
I definitely think that Felafel House at 196 Toorak Rd in Toorak/South Yarra, Melbourne has to be THE best place in Melbourne to find felafels! Jimmy the owner/chef is amazing and makes all his own super-fresh felafels every day plus all the rest of the middle-eastern food he creates is excellent too. The cost is really reasonable and he takes a lot of pride in ensuring that what he makes tastes superb. I know he creates his own spices. You definitely won't regret a visit there :)
