Fine falafel

Ken Hoffman | Feb 10, 200203:24 PM

A San Jose institution, The Falafel Drive-In a classic chowhound haunt situated off of Stevens Creek Blvd just south of Valley Fair shoppong mall. The menu ranges from middle eastern fast food classics to
burgers and fries but for my money the falafel is what I stand in line for. The oval vege nuggets are as I remember them in the stalls of Jerusalem, golden dark brown on the outside and irridescnet green on the inside. Crunchy (not chewy) and aromatic, they are topped with a respectible harissa. I recommend a side of hummus and fries for dipping--first dip fries in the hummus and then lay the whole mess on top of the sandwish and dig in! No wonder this place is rockin' opening to close.
