When my brother, who is vegan, came to visit me from out of state, we ate at Falafels because we both liked hummus-based dishes and Falafels offers a number of options in addition to meat. Although I don't remember exactly what he got, one of his side dishes was grilled aspargus. It was so good that he raved about it for two days. I had an appetizer that consisted of puffed pastry with four different fillings. They were visible in a display case when we walked in, and they tasted every bit as good as they looked.
According to their website, Falafels offers "flavors from Jersalem," and the decor seemed to follow that ethnic choice. The service was good and even though our visit was on a late Friday afternoon on one of Bloomington's busiest weekends, the restaurant was not crowded. It is a bit tricky to find, however. It is situated in a cluster of businesses located in an odd shaped, multi-level, wooden building near campus at the corner of Dunn and Kirkwood/Fifth Street. The entrance is on the southeast corner of the building.
Falafels also makes pita pockets that are sold at Bloomingfoods in packages of six. Those are the best pita pockets. I fill them with hummus and serve them with blue chips.
