Goldie is a fast-casual falafel shop from the people behind Zahav and Federal Donuts. In addition to their main Rittenhouse location, they also have an outpost at Franklin’s Table. Their menu is pretty short, with sandwiches, salads, and fries, but that’s because they do one thing really well - falafel. It’s crispy and full of spices, and you can get it with a few different sauces, but the harissa is our favorite. Also, you should save room for a tehina milkshake - they substitute ice cream and milk with tehina and coconut whip, and it tastes better than most dairy milkshakes.
