Great Falafel

One of my favorite lunch spots is Pita Plus, 2145 Stirling Road, Hollywood 33021. One of the delicacies of the middle east is the falafel. Several cultures claim it; however, Pita Plus has my vote for best in South Florida.

For those who are not familiar with it, a falafel is a fried ball of seasoned chick peas placed in a pita with fresh vegetables, and usually topped with hummus and tahini, and spiced with a topping sauce called schug. This masterpiece they create is a perfect version of the falafel here in South Florida.

Several interesting notes: They are a full kosher restaurant and the appearance is very clean. The owner is Israeli and cater to that crowd although I observed all types of people eating there. They also offer fresh schwarma which is seasoned lamb on a spit, tuna, chicken and a few other varieties. You can order the sandwich alone or as a platter with side salads such as hummus, baba ghanoush, tabouli, and eggplant.

From their green falafel balls, personalized service, and free garnishes they have a winning combination. At $5.45 for a falafel sandwich bursting at the seams, it is also a bargain. The prices are very reasonable and they are open from 11am until 10pm Sunday through Thursday. Open Friday 11am to 4pm and closed Saturday.
