Always be prepared

'Always be prepared', that's my motto. So why wasn't I? It was a thought I'd come back to again and again over the lockdown period. Why didn't I prepare? When Covid 19 hit I had no frozen falafel in the freezer, no dried chickpeas, a few scant tins which were to soon run out. I... Continue Reading →

All you can eat falafel

'I never thought I'd say it, but they give you far too much falafel' my friend uttered sadly, looking at his still half full plate. The rest of us nodded grimly, fixated on finishing our portions. None of us could bear the thought of leaving falafel or other mezze on our plates, unfinished. The waste... Continue Reading →

What the falafel? End of year falafel 2019

It's been a busy old year and as a result, falafel has had to take a back seat. I know,  I know, must reassess my priorities in 2020 and get back on the falafel wagon. I will summarise here the rest of the years (mainly) disappointing falafel. My trip to Copenhagen for my brother's wedding... Continue Reading →

Falafel in strange places

    So we moved house, just in time to welcome our new arrival into the world. If he ever appears that is, he seems to enjoy being wedged in between my ribs and lungs whilst simultaneously pressing on my bladder too much to ever want to leave.  He's like an enormous octopus, punching and...

Rainy Day Falafel in Bristol

April in Bristol was typically wet, living up to the 'April Showers' tradition with brief sunny spells breaking up the icy rain. I had come into Bristol centre to meet my ratemyfalafel.com associate partner for a 'cultural day'. I had managed to get hold of some free tickets to a couple of exhibitions that were...

Homecoming Falafels: The Triumphant Return

That’s right, we couldn’t resist the pull of mighty olde England and we returned once more to the glorious homeland. I wanted to see Brexit in all its fanfare – putting the Great back into Great Britain. So, we drove for 3 days across land and sea, and arrived back in the old country –... Continue Reading →

WE DO NOT SELL NITROUS OXIDE

Apologies to all the falafel lovers out there. Your falafel stuffed author has been too busy watching TV and complaining about the cold to write any reviews for a while. Life is hard. Well, we moved to another part of Bristol. One of the primary reasons to move was to appreciate a whole new range of falafel... Continue Reading →

Library Falafel – Tough Times, High Hopes

Munching on a cheeky lunch break falafel at Wick Road Library,  I couldn't help wonder if this would be the last time I falafel-ed it in this particular library. It was one of the 17 libraries in Bristol marked for closure and the decision was to be made in a few weeks time (December 4th).... Continue Reading →

View from a professional – Mezze Palace

Well, we're all pro's at falafel I suppose, but I was dining this time with my professional chef friend, who made falafel for a living!  Double dining. A cutesy couple-y double date - dinner and a (shit) movie. Our other friends had reacted in disgust when we told them, and one of them (recently single)... Continue Reading →
