Falafel Grill...New ethnic restaurant in Naples!

Val | Sep 25, 200904:18 PM

Stumbled upon this newly opened little place tonight in the Asia Pok market plaza at 2075 Pine Ridge Road. Went in to ask how long they'd been opened...very friendly staff said only a week. Gave me a sample of lovely pureed lentil soup with caramelized onion accent and a sample of a semolina dessert (can't remember the name). I ordered a falafel pita to go since I hadn't eaten dinner yet. Lovely fluffy falafels enclosed in a thin whole wheat pita (some places give you a wrap that's so thick and doughy...really not how I like it) with tons of greens, tomato, fresh red onion and tzatziki for .... $4.95!!!! (Menu says tahini but I love my falafel with tzatziki, period) so they happily made the substitution. They bake their own bread daily...Owner may be a former Ritz Carlton chef...did they say Egyptian? ... not entirely sure but oh, man, their prices are so NOT NAPLES! Lamb gyro...$5.95...Kofta Kebab $5.95. Right now, they only have a lunch menu but they were open at 5:30 p.m. when I finished my shopping at Asia Pok market on way home from work. Hope you try it!
