Sunrise Deli, SF

Melanie Wong | May 9, 200603:05 PM

Fired up by last week's falafel discussions of points much further south, I decided to make due in SF by stopping at Sunrise Deli for a light dinner and to sample the falafel style. I ordered a small veggie platter, as shown below, for $4.99.

The falafel was freshly made and still warm when served to me. Strangely bland and undersalted in general, but with some hot chili bits blended into the chickpea base that zinged unexpectedly. Also, the crust wasn't that crunchy. Best thing on the plate was the tahini, the sesame-based dip fragrant with fresh green herbs on the front of the plate. The cucumber salad was fine too, other than the unripe tomatoes. Besides that, the other items --- dolmas, hummos, babaghanouj, turnip pickles, tabouli --- were below average.

The staff were very friendly here and prices were low enough that I didn't feel ripped off. But the food doesn't invite a return visit.
