The Experience of Eating Falafal at Murrays (261 1st Avenue NYC)

Murray's Kosher Falafel:

This is just below 14th Street on the West Side of 2nd

I often eat Falafal, but the Falafal Balls that I ate at Murray's not too long ago, were so delicious, and since eating there, I have not been able to find a duplicated level of quality anywhere in NYC or outside, even out of state, for now at least. Thus said, Hoomoos Asli, 100 Kenmare is a good contender.

The sauce that they give the customer comes in a fat ketchup sized plastic squeeze bottle, and seems derived from a base of tahini,not too thick and not too thin. One can use it liberally.

The hot sauce is made from a green pepper, in house, with some other organic fresh additives and is quite hot, with a texture that not quite sauce-like and more similar to a garnish.One can ask for as many of the tiny plastic cups of this hot garnish as one desires.

The plates (or platters of Falafal come with a generous portion of lettuce, purple cabbage, and a combo chopped onion, parsly and chopped tomatoes.

Other items on the menu are many, from Shawarma using a number of meats (chicken and beef...maybe lamb) to Hummus. You can see the menu on line.
