Moses Falafel report

Went to this falafel cart inside the fences of the Dell Jewish Community Center yesterday and came away very impressed. Menu is dead simple, consisting either of a pita stuffed with falafel, tomato and cucumber salad, hummus, lettuce, pickles, and sauce ($5.50), or a larger portion served as a plate ($6.75). Moses lists all their food as vegan, kosher, and gluten-free (if you skip the pita).
Based on the frying sounds when we placed our orders, the falafel appears to be cooked to order. Veggies are crisp, hummus is good, though a side note, and the pita is wonderfully soft and chewy. Most surprising were the pickles, which I did not expect to go with falafel, but which was an excellent combination. According to the owner, Samuel, pickles are a must with falafel in Israel, which was news to me.
I polished off lunch with a piece of baklava, which was sinfully gooey and properly flaky.
The owner is a really nice guy, and even came over to visit with us on a lull, asking for feedback on the food. We also got two stamps on our 'buy 10 get one free' card. We'll definitely be back.
