OK, I went to check out Full Time Falafel On Coney Island Ave. today.
Had a whole falafel there.
First the positive(notice it's in singular).
I was impressed that the falafel balls were made as I ordered. But, that made me wonder that if they were actually busy how long it would take to get my order.
Now the negatives,
a) No chips (fries) in the falafel.
b) the pita did not have that good consistency. Good pita does not fall apart from the bottom due to the chumus, this one did.
c) I had to ask to put pickles and techina in the falafel. That's pretty sad considering those are the basics of the basic in a falafel
d) the guy who came in after also ordered a falafel. I actually saw the guy behind the counter turn around and put some other condiment inside the falafel that i wasnt offered . It seemed that this customer was there before and the guy behind the counter knew him and was more hospitable.
e) no turkish salad or charif , or at least i wasn't offered any.
All in all I am only critiquing the falafel, which after all was said and done definitley does not come close to a good falafel in Israel.
It may be better than most falafel in brooklyn, but thats not saying much.
(One other thing. When i asked for chips they told me that real falafel in Israel does not come with chips. That is totally not true. Pretty much every place I've had falafel in Israel has chips in the falafel)
