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 →
