I had an amazing lunch at Falafel-ly Yours, in South Orange, NJ. We were seated in the back room that has couches and these low circular tables.
I ordered a Casablanca sunrise (a smootie of pineapple, banana, mango, spinach, kale, turbinado sugar – it’s the green drink in the picture below), hummas (chickpea puree with lemon with tahini served with pita bread), beef and lamb shawerma (mixture of beef and lamb marinated with Mediterranean spices) that came with rice and grilled vegetables (in the picture it is the one with shredded meat). My sister ordered a diet coke, lamb shish kebab (lamb marinated with garlic, mint and Mediterranean spices) and baba ghonouj (which is roasted eggplant with tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and virgin olive oil).
I enjoyed my meal, it was tasty and filling! The atmosphere was very nice, background music played but I was able to have a conversation and still easedrop on my neighbors conversation (my guilty pleasure!!) without straining my ears. After ordering, the meal arrived pretty fast and I quickly dug in.
This was my first time eating Middle Eastern cuisine and I will definately visit the Falafel-ly Yours restaurant again and try out different meals on the menu.
If you happen to be there next time I’m there please have an interesting conversation so I can enjoy your conversation and my pleasant meal!
