Kulushkat: falafel in Park Slope

missmasala | Jun 22, 201105:15 AM     7

Tho I live about three feet from a Zaytoons, I almost never eat falafel in brownstone Brooklyn because it's generally not very good. I used to dream about a Taim-style place opening its doors near me.

Now maybe it has. While Kulushkat is not three feet from me, it's certainly nearer than Taim or any of the places on Coney Island Ave.

And, if my sampling yesterday is any indication, it's good. Really good. They just opened on Friday and don't have some things yet (like sabich sandwiches and takeout menus), but the people running the place are incredibly friendly and eager to please, always a plus. It's also evident how much pride they take in the food they are serving.

I passed by while running errands yesterday afternoon and stopped in to sample some falafel. I wasn't hungry enough for a sandwich or anything else, so just tried the plain balls on their own, which is my falafel measure anyway.

These were good—green with herbs, nice flavor, fried well. They also have spicy falafel, a chicken based one, and a mushroom based one. I didn't try any of those, so can't report.

Though there is no fixings bar like the ones at Olympic Pita or any of those places down Coney Island Ave., you can have any of several varieties of delicious looking salads on your pita. They also offer a fried chicken cutlet sandwich, which, if it's any good, will save me having to haul down to Schnitzi's when the mood strikes.

If this place lives up to its promise, it will be exciting news for felafel-loving folks nearby.
