Gainesville, FL Restaurant Profile: Falafel King

By
Real Estate Agent with Classic Properties

 

Whenever I am near Archer Road area, I make sure to stop by Falafel King and stock up on goodies.  My absolute favorite things to get there are, of course, falafel sandwiches, lentil pies, spinach pies and their zatar bread.  I prefer my falafel with the yogurt sauce as oppossed to tahini.  I always purchase a gyro for my boyfriend. 

I have tried Gyro Plus and did not feel it compared even remotely with Falafel King's soft, pillow dough and fresh flavors.  Although Gyro Plus has a very very good veggie kibbie sandwich (crushed wheat, mashed potatoes, fresh parsley, homemade spices, mixed and baked. Served with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, parsley).

Lentil Pies and Spinach Pies pictured below.  The lentil pies have soft onions and a pleasant cumin flavor.  The lentils are tender, the dough pillowy - a pocket of heaven.  The spinach pies have a refreshing lemon flavor, coupled with cooked onion and soft spinach.  The spinach pies are my favorite thing from Falafel King.

 

 

Zaatar Bread and Gyro pictured below.  The Zaatar Bread contains lemon, lots of seasame seeds and herbs.  It is enjoyable by itself or with fresh hummus or baba ghanoush.

 

 

Falafel is a blend of ground lentils.  Fava beans are usually included.  The falafel is blended with five spice and other seasonings, formed into a ball and fried.  It is delicious coupled with the yogurt sauce, lettuce, tomato and pickle, as pictured below (sorry it is a bit blurry):

 

 

I also enjoy Falafel King's Grape Leaves, which are served warm and are very lemony.
