Great falafel at Queen of Falafel in Bushwick

Blumie | Nov 16, 201511:52 AM     18

Ok, let me first disclose my bias: I am a huge supporter of, and donated to the kickstarter campaign for, the adjacent and somehow affiliated House of Yes performance space. They (the performance space, not the restaurant) used to be on Maujer St., and when they moved to their current location (Jefferson St. at the corner of Wyckoff Ave., right at the Jefferson St. stop on the L), they hooked up with a new partner, and somehow the restaurant came out of that. The restaurant has been open for several weeks, I think. The performance space opens up in December. Keep an eye out for it. In any event, I very much want this place to succeed.

So I was riding on the L this afternoon, on my way to Roberta's for lunch, when it hit me that I could instead check out the recently opened Queen of Falafel. I'm really glad I did. I thought the falafel sandwich was really great. Fresh and not at all greasy balls of falafel, with lots of crunch and lots of nutiness, enveloped in a pita (white or wheat; I went for wheat) and surrounded by fresh and finely chopped vegetables and herbs. I ordered mine with a side of fries, which are served with harrisa-spiked ketchup. With a bottle of water, it came to $12.50 for what I thought was an excellent and very satisfying lunch. I'll be back.
