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 →

Freedom Falafel

As I bit into into Biblos's 'Veggie Challenge' with a sigh of satisfaction on Friday,  I couldn't help but ruminate on the last 'meal' I had had. Let me set the scene.  24 hours previous to the falafel I was waiting for my prison issue food. Yes, I'd been nicked, again. This time for the hideous... Continue Reading →

ASDA Vs “Second House Products”

Times are tough in the ratemyfalafel.com household. How were we to know that not paying our council tax bill since October would result in us having to pay a massive amount all at once? We had to tighten our belts. It was packet bought, value falafel for us. We decided to have a falafel off,... Continue Reading →

Maybe if I had been drunk, it would have been better

The Canteen, on trendy Stokes Croft where we found ourselves, was teeming with drunken youths, some of whom (well, one) asked for our advice on places to... Continue Reading →

Shake, Wrap and Roll

After walking past this particular cafe on an almost daily basis. wondering if they included falafel in their wrap ingredients, I finally decided to give it a go. I was hungry from an anti-austerity demo I had just attended, as part of the 'Libraries Bloc. My favourite chant was 'Libraries, should be free! Not just... Continue Reading →

Biblos Bristol

I finally did it. After living in Bristol for over a year, I finally decided the time was right to splash out on a falafel from the famous Biblos, a Bristol institution, or so it seems. There are rave reviews on the internet, people mention it to me as a falafel eater all the time,... Continue Reading →

Who is the Falafel? A guest blog by MJB.

Who is the falafel? I ruminate for several minutes thinking of the historical falafels of my life. There was that great one in Amsterdam with the implausible salad bar but was that me or the falafel? The city, booze or hummus? There were those homemade falafels we had when we watched Jurassic Park but I... Continue Reading →

Happy International Falafel Day!

I'm ashamed to say that I was only informed of this special day a few hours ago. Luckily, I had not yet dined and immediately went to get a quick falafel dinner. I have been making my way through a great number of falafel takeaways on our street, but I am still only half way... Continue Reading →
