In praise of rainbow falafel

i haven't been here in years, but i stopped in today--in short, delicious falafel.

falafel balls were herby and flavorful, fried with a nice crunch (with great fried sesame seeds on the outside), hot sauce richly flavorful but not too overwhelming, and tahini light and not overpowering.

i'd put them far above chickpea (too much bread, too little insides, falafel not nearly as flavorful, and overwhelmingly mean staff) and taim (good, but not as good as rainbow; tahini too dominant).

what else do you like at rainbow? the shawarma looked good--any thoughts?
