The felafel sandwich is huge, and comes with a bowl of pretty good lentil soup. If size does matter, this isn't a bad stop. But there's a downside. The felafals in the sandwich tasted fresh, and it was nice to feel the grains in the warm felafal, but it wasn't as crisp or as aromatic as I would have liked. Maybe it was obscured by the thick blanket of the pita-like bread, wrapped nearly two layers deep, even though that didn't cover the lemony hummus. Perhaps it's best to get them in a platter or something, sans bread.

Dessert was quite a disappointment, a deep pool of clear syrup drenched the nest of shredded filo/wheat (not sure which) turning it soggy. Walnuts were sparse. Cinnamon helped a little. If only it was crispy....
