Ever since my two trips to Israel, I have fallen in love with the FALAFEL sandwich. What is a FALAFEL sandwich? FALAFEL is a ball made from ground chickpeas and is served in a pita with salads, pickled vegetables and sauces in it as well. It is absolutely amazing.
So this past weekend when my wife and I were in New Jersey we were walking around a mall and noticed that there was a large Jewish population in the area. So I went out to our JEEP and plugged the word "FALAFEL" into my GPS and followed the directions to Ibbs Falafel in Freehold, New Jersey. What a wonderful lunch we had. It made me feel like I was sitting back in the Old city of Jerusalem where I ate the best FALAFEL sandwich I have ever had.
You can also buy FALAFEL at Costco. We have and my wife found a recipie and from it made a pretty mean FALAFEL sandwich herself.
So if you are reading this posting and you live anywhere or know of any place where someone can get a really good FALAFEL sandwich, please post a comment and let me know. If I am ever near that area I will set my GPS so I can enjoy some FALAFEL.
After all, in my book the only sandwich that comes close to comparing with a good FALAFEL would be Liverwurst with Miracle Whip! YUM! YUM!
