Guest post: falafel in India!

Thanks very much to Laura for this review.
Chill Out Hostel Hampi Falafel Hampi

Having tried and failed to review Australian falafel I have to say I was not optimistic of success in India. How wrong was I. Here in Hampi it seems there is not a menu without an Israeli section offering the delights of falafel.

Where’s the sauce?!?

Well what you see is what I got exactly as the menu said: falafel, salad, chips, hummus, pita. Crunchy, uncomplicated and in the eating uncompromising. The chips were a real highlight perhaps, with a touch of turmeric for that authentic Indian touch. The hummus was fine if non-descript, but the pita was lovely and fluffy though somewhat redundant on a side plate. The falafel itself was tasty and crunchy, did I say crunchy, very crunchy. The biggest disappointment for me was the salad which was just cucumber and tomato. Afterwards I tentatively suggested the addition of onion and mentioned something about chilli.

Pluses: Good service, great music, unbeatable location. Marks out of 5 = 2.5.

PS will try to try some more Hampi falafel when I have fully recovered from my non falafel related food poisoning!
