Falafel King is Aces

Due to unseasonably kickass weather, I found myself walking around the neighborhood yesterday. And rather than getting my 15,000th Skinny Godfather at Milio’s (I knew them as Big Mike’s back in Madison), I gave Falafel King a shot.

Solid. Falafel can easily get mealy or bland, and Falafel King’s was neither… in fact, my sandwich came to me hot, straight out of the falafelizer. My only complaint: the pita and its contents blew up with the force of a World War I hand grenade about halfway through. You gotta eat those things carefully.

    I adore Falafel King… the one over in Uptown anyway.

    The downtown skyway location, not so much.

    Their falafel just tastes, and has the texture of, the chickpeas/garbanzos in being a little undercooked. It’ll do in a pinch, but I’d rather take the time to run over to the Greek Grill in the City Center.

    I’ve found Falafel King to be kinda hit or miss, though I’ve never actually had the falafel.

    I might just need to lower my expectations, because I keep trying to find a place that will stand up to middle eastern restaurants in Detroit, and I don’t think there is one here.
