“Best Falafels... Period...!!”

International Pocket Cafe
Ranked #3 of 21 Restaurants in Kingston
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 1, 2011

International Pocket Cafe specializes in pita wraps: falafel, grilled chicken, and more. There are about 10 different wraps on offer. The ingredients you can add are fresh and flavorful. I go with the simple ingredient mix: "the works".

They usually offer you a freshly made falafel to taste, as you wait. Often, they throw in a small piece of honey-dipped baklava treat as you pay.... just yummy.

Dave, the owner, has really expanded to multiple fastfood places in this Kingston Emporium area, next to the University of Rhode Island (URI) campus. So, he is usually not there (as was the case in the past). But if he is there, you are in for an aural-visual treat... in rapid-speak he reels out the ingredients that go into his falafels.

Dave told me once that he tweaked the traditional falafel taste to take away some of the sharp and (to the foreign palette) strange ingredients, added more chick peas, and created his "perfect falafel".

During and after college, my daughter spent 3 years all over the Middle East. Her testimony is priceless. She says after all those places in the Middle East, the falafels at International Pockets are the best.. the best in the world...!
