Falafel King’s building is small but impossible to miss, thanks to a beige pillar on top that serves as a beacon, pointing you toward excellent falafel and other quick eats. Sit at the single counter in front of the two-person team taking and preparing orders, and watch them shave off meat from the two vertical spits spinning shawarma behind the counter. The falafel sandwich is the most popular dish on the menu—at lunchtime it’s common to overhear multiple people ordering it. But don’t discount the juicy shawarma, and don’t forget to dress up your pita with the orange mayo-ish dip that reminds us of a yum yum sauce.
