HOMEBREW FALAFEL(NUTMEG FORMULA)

Many thanks to Laura for this guest post. "Everyday is like Sunday." So sang Morrissey, and for many of us a fitting epitaph for lockdown. But what does that have to do with falafel I hear you cry? Well, it may feel like a year of Sundays but it isn't healthy to eat Sunday Roast... Continue Reading →

Eat out to help out

We at ratemyfalafel.com have done our bit to rebuild Britain post lock down by selflessly chowing down on half price food for the past few weeks. I know, where's the clapping for me, eh? To be quite honest the food has been sub par - a really lack lustre selection of falafel and pasties have... Continue Reading →

Quorn-ish Pasty?

Quorn* with Ginsters have recently brought out a couple of new vegan pasties. For about 15 years I have found myself buying those newsagent plastic packaged samosas when out and about and stuck for something to eat. These days, you have a lot more choice when in a supermarket but there is still a distinct... Continue Reading →

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 kicking me... Continue Reading →

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 →
