Discovered this place yesterday January 4th 2019 and was so pleased that I walked by this small falafel shop. The menu is very simple, either a falafel sandwich or a bowl small or regular are your only options. I recommend the large bowl because the add on's are amazing and you can load up as much as the bowl allows.

Yes that's correct the add-ons are what makes this place amazing. Here is a small list of the add-ons you can add in your falafel sandwich or Bowl. Please take a look at the photos I supplied.

Pickled cauliflower = amazing flavor
Pickled beets = loved them
Pickled turnips = light soft taste
Red cabbage = very good
Cole slaw = excellent
Torrator = amazing
Turkish salad = amazing
Baba ganoush = amazing
Hummus = excellent
Chick pea salad = amazing
Crunchy onions = very good
And there are a few others I don't recall.

The large bowl loaded, again, you load your bowl with as little or as much as the bowl can handle, costs about $8.

The place is so good that we came here today for lunch as well.

Small little gem for fast food healthy eats in Sunset Place (formerly known as Bakery Center).

Delicious, healthy fast food. You can get a wrap or a bowl. The bowl comes in two sizes. You tell them what type of meat or Falafel & they put it on a wrap or bowl. After that it's self serve for the sauces & toppings. There are many choices. It's all very fresh. I will go back for sure!

This restaurant reminded me of so many in Europe. You can build your own, add whatever you want to your falafel sandwhich. Everything is fresh and made as you order it, nothing is sitting around. Great place and great value! Enjoy

So stumbled upon this awesome lil falafel shop in the neighborhood, what a great surprise! Located at: 5835 Sunset Drive, SMIA. After being introduced to the falafel shops overseas and in NYC it was wonderful finding this place close to home. The setting is real casual, the service behind the counter charming and oh wow the ingredients so fresh! So what’s a falafel? “a Middle Eastern dish of spiced mashed chickpeas formed into balls or fritters and deep-fried, usually eaten with or in pita bread”. You walk up to counter select whether you want a sandwich (wheat/white) or bowl, available in small or regular. Other fare includes fresh fries just like those found in Amsterdam. Grab some soft drinks or water and sit on tall bar style tables while the falafel is cooked. You are called to counter by the very pleasant young man or young lady. You are now free to add your garnishes - oh and what a spread! Baba Ganoush made of mashed eggplant and spices; Chickpea Salad, Cucumber and Tomato salad, Hummus, Pickled Cauliflower, Red Cabbage with Vinagrette, Tahini, Turkish Salad, Coleslaw - and a delicious array of sauces: Yogurt, Jalapeño Cilantro, Garlic Cream, Garlic Parsley and on and on......and for your fries try the deliciously interesting Curried Ketchup just like you’d find in Germany curry wurst shops. If you want a satisfying, filling, healthy lunch or even light dinner alternative to the ordinary stuff around - go to this Falafel Shop!

This is a small but wonderful restaurant in South Miami. Very close to the movie theater at Sunset Place. I recommend the falafel bowl, as you will want to add all of the delicious pickled items from the salad/condiment bar. The falafel are very crispy on the outside, and not dry at all on the inside - just like they are supposed to be! If you order the french fries, you might want to order a small....because you get a giant cone full, which you place into the hole in your table! $8.50 for a regular size bowl, fries are around $4. They also serve Dr. Brown's soda in the can, in case you are interested.
