Maoz Vegetarian Falafel

A new falafel place is giving L'As a bit of competition! Maoz may not have Lenny Kravitz posing for photo ops with the staff, but they do have tasty falafels that you get to build yourself. Completely vegetarian, you start off with a small or large pita filled with the basics: falafel balls (minced chickpeas with herbs and spices, fried in vegetable oil) and lettuce, then you fill it up yourself from the salad bar, with tomatoes, beets, pickles, cucumbers, onions, herbs, carrots, hummus, tahini, peppers, olives, and as much hot sauce as you can handle.

You can also get hummus or aubergine (eggplant) falafels, salads, or even fries (hey, I said it was vegetarian, not health food). A large falafel on its own is €4.40. The Maoz Menu of falafel + fries + drink is €7.40. Fries are €2.20. There are two locations, only the one at St-André-des-Arts has a few stools to sit on, otherwise it's to go.

Open daily, 11:30am-1am.
