which countries have you had a falafel in?

Postby JP » Thu Sep 03, 2009 6:56 am

Me and bronco concluded that list of countries you have visited is a bit lame, the real test of visiting a country is to eat a falafel there.

Which countries have you eaten a falafel in? The falafel cannot be self made.

JP:

austria
finland
netherlands
South africa
UK
US

PATHETIC! Not even sweden :D

Hmm, let's see:

Countries where I've had falafel:
Sweden
Austria
Finland
UK
Netherlands
Serbia
Denmark (probably)
US (probably)

Countries I've visited without having falafel:

Germany. This doesnt seem to make any sense, I have been to germany several time, but never eaten falafel?
France. This was simply so long ago I hadnt eaven heard about falafel.
Greece. Ditto.
Norway. Not sure why, maybe I did have falafel last time I visited norway? Memories are a bit blurry.
Romania. Didnt find any, but I also didnt search too hard. Too busy watching weightlifting.
Japan. I made it to a falafel place in Kyoto, but they had ran out of falafel. WTF !?
Czech republic. Was in Prague last summer, I think I didnt have falafel. There were some ok restaurants though, maybe they made me lost focus.

Alas, just the US--but I must say the best falafel should you hit Boston is the Falafel King on Winter St in Downtown Crossing.

Very. Very. Worth. It.

I luuuurve falafel. Especially with homemade hummus or baba ganoush.

Om nom nom

When I make it, I typically bake it. I figure it's lower in guilt. :D
