What do you think of falafel?
My first introduction to this typically deep-fried chickpea patty came from a Middle Eastern Eatery down the street from my house in high school.
I used to call ahead and order the “Hummus Falafel Rolled” and pick it up in my parents’ blue Honda Civic. I was practically drooling when I unwrapped it on the way home to reveal the golden brown pita stuffed hummus, greens, veg, and the crispiest brown falafel patties.
Too tempting to wait.
And it was messy, because the best foods are. I’m talking major hummus and falafel landslide messy.
Probably not the best thing to eat in your parents’ car when you’re 16.
Sorry, mom and dad.
