As far as chickpea news goes, it’s not quite as dramatic as the ongoing hummus feud between Isreal and Lebanon, but Serious Eats is featuring a comprehensive look at falafel sandwiches in New York, crowning Taïm as the best in the metropolis. Take a gander at all the runners-up via an SE slideshow.
East Village affordable standby Mamoun’s, which handily won a Battle of the Dishes against newcomer Cheep’s, didn’t even make it past the first round of tasting.
More good news for Taïm lovers: The shop will soon launch a falafel truck, the better to spread the good stuff around.
And what about you, good eaters? Do you agree that Taïm makes New York’s superior falafel sandwich?
