Flora Falafel, ( kinda long)

Madonna | May 19, 200501:56 PM

I have noticed many discussions in the past on middle eastern food and suprisingly no mention of Flora Falafel (on Burbank near Whitsett). I have to admit being dissapointed there once,(the shwarma was kind of dry) although it was at the end of the day and things were not the freshest. However, I had a great experience for the most part, and especially yesterday. I highly recomend their homemade soups. I had the vegetable soup which was full of flavorful spices but not hot spicy. It had lots of tumeric and other spices that I could not distinguish. It had dill and potatoes, and carrots and chickpeas. I am pretty discerning when it comes to soups, and it made my list. They also carry pea soup, and lentil soup and then there is usually a soup of the day. I had the pea soup and it was delicious also. The pita bread is also one of the best in the valley. It is thick and spongy and flavorful, just the way I like it. The shwarma is pretty good, it really can't compare to the shwarmas I have had in Israel, but its pretty good. The same goes for their falafel and baklavaa. All their food is very inexpensive and great for vegetarians. It is glatt kosher but don't expect tablecloths or any of that , this is a hole in the wall, with great food.
