Our Review

Offering a focused menu and a dazzling array of optional condiments, Falafill is a franchise-ready marketing concept poised to spawn multiple locations. Basic idea: select decently prepared falafel in pita ($4.95) or a plastic bowl ($6.95); then challenge gravity by piling on herb-rich salads, spicy veggies, and piquant sauces drawn from a large bar in the center of the store. Add-ons like fava bean puree and hummus, available for a surcharge, are superfluous: each order gives you access to the regularly replenished and formidable condimentarium of cabbage with mint, zhug (jalapeño and cilantro), taratour (tahini with lemon), and dozens of other colorful, generally low-cal options like Armenian salad. Exercise restraint with these condiments, which are best deployed in moderation and can easily overwhelm. White and sweet potato fries can also be drizzled with selections from a battery of hot, sweet, and sour sauces. Novel beverages include tongue-blistering ginger beer, but given the generally aggressive flavors of food and fixings, consider palate-calming yogurt drinks. Falafill’s food is fresh and fast, though priced a little on the higher side. With migraine-inducing interior lighting, a Denny’s-inspired color scheme, cramped quarters, and limited seating on backless stools that discourage lingering, this Boystown newcomer seems best for grab-and-go dining.
