The Best Falafal in Boston

There is a new king of falafals in Boston, and it not the Falafal King, the new champ in my mind is Pita Thyme a new opening in PO sq on the corner of Batterymarch and Liberty. I've been a long-time fan of the Falafal king, and their new location on Winter St is every bit as good as the old seedy Downtown Crossing location, so this is not a knock on the FK. I just enjoyed my 4th Falafal from Pita Thyme in about two weeks, I wanted to test their ability to consistently deliver before posting. The Falafals are made from all fresh ingredients and fresh herbs so they are more greenish in color than the traditional light brown one's often made from dry ingredients (you can see them being made almost to order during lunchtime) . Complementing the extremely fresh and flavorful falafal, are two types of pickels, one of which is purple that it seems to me that they may pickle themsleves, they also add some nice spicy banana peppers to give it a little extra bite, it also has the traditional lettuce, tomatoe and some fresh herbs, I think mostly parsely. Not only is it the tastiest Falafal, it is also the neatest to eat, they have a unique construction process that results in a nice tightly-rolled wrap, even when adding in the tahini and extra hot sauce, it still holds its form. It is a husband wife team running the operation and they are always there overseing quality control. Definitely worth checking out!
