    Ok so you made a mistake and poured that hot sauce instead of dripping it? grab a bottle of Ayran (Turkish yoghurt drink) from Turkiss a little south on the same street. your mouth will thank you.

    Visit the expanded location in the East Village, where a falafel sandwich with all the fixins is still one of the city’s most delicious and laughably cheap meals. Read more

    With its luxuriance of fried chickpea fritters, nutty tasting tahini, and fresh greens, onions, and tomatoes, Mamoun's falafel redefined a quick bite for New Yorkers. Read more

    A neighborhood favorite for a quick and inexpensive meal. There are only a couple of seats inside so be sure to get moving quickly if you snag one or even to take it up to the park and snag a bench.

    7aram 3alek you left your friends at the bar for some delicious falafel, but it's kind of hard to feel bad when everything tastes so good.

    Super spicy hot sauce. Try at your own risk. Make sure to order a baklava at the end to finish your meal on a high note!

    Best Babaganough I haven't found anywhere else! I wish I could make the equivalent at home ...until then I Ill get it as a sandwich to eat right away and sometimes as plate to take home.

    The chicken kebab was a bit dry-- a great cheap eat though, get the platter! The tahini sauce is a must.

    Tried and true is a lamb shawarma sandwich from Mamoun's topped with their hot sauce — which is liquid masochism. Filled with so much pleasure, yet is almost equally painful. Read more

    Falafel sandwich has never failed me in the 18 years I’ve been coming here. Bring cash. Use the hot sauce (with some caution).

    Mamoun's is legendary. One is able to overlook the decrepit, tiny interior because the authentic falafel and shawarma sandwiches are to die for. Perfect for lunch or dinner on the go.

    Cheap, filling and fast. Also, it's not too unhealthy. I love the baba ganouj but others swear by the falafel. For $3.50 each, try both.

    6 bucks for the falafel plate which is basically two sandwiches. So good. So cheap. Classic example of where even the meat eaters go veggie.

    I love mamoun's! Best beef shawarma around and the falafel is also excellent. Great place to come to late night after hitting up the bars in the area.

    Yada yada yada - if u don't know the falafel sandwich is the best in the city, where've u been for the past 15+ yrs? Don't sleep on the lentil soup. It'll change your life. Hot sauce all around...

    One of the best falafel, hands down. Try out chicken kebab version as well. Don't be dissuaded by the long line - these guys have an exceptional turn around time.

    You can do a full course meal here. Start with a side of babaganoush, then falafel or shawarma sandwich, a baklava and a cup of tea. 12 bucks on the outside.

    Yummy Eqyptian Middle Eastern restaurant in the heart of the Village. They have delicious falafel, chicken shwarma, hummus. The line is usually out the door because the prices are reasonable as well..

    Even if you don't care much for falafel (I don't), their shawarma is out of this world. Go when they are not crazy busy and the meat is deliciously charred on the edges.

    For less than $5, you’ll get a pita-full of schwarma, deliciously creamy baba ghannouj, and falafel that’s cooked just right (crunchy on the outside, fluffy and moist on the inside).

    Small, tasty and veggie-friendly - falafel is the best thing to come from a chickpea. New Yorkers have certainly taken to these fried fritters, but if you're looking for the best, look no further. Read more

    The chicken kabob and falafel sandwich combo is the BEST. Hope you like spicy! Their sandwiches send you to flavor town.

    I can never decide between Shwarma or Falafel, but Hummus say they're both delicious.

    Love the falafels here. If you get the player don't get both hummos and baba. Portions are big and they are heavy! Cash only.

    NYC’s best cheap falafel costs $3.50. Also try the pita with baba ganouj or the shawarma sandwich. Careful with the spicy sauce!

    The best, but they've been slacking lately - none of the requested hot sauce OR hummus on my $4 (!) falafel and hummus pita the other evening :(

    Cheap and delicious sandwiches. Get a falafel sandwich for $4.50 and eat it on the street for a true Village experience.

    Tiny joint, cheap n decent. Baba ganoush a bit strange. Falafel is great. Next time will try the shawarma.

    Take a veggie/meat combo plate if you are really hungry. Hummus and baba-ghanoush are very delicious!
