Middle Eastern: Amsterdam Falafelshop

Rated by Zagat as the 2011 “Best Buy, Best Sandwhich and Best Middle Eastern”, you can’t go wrong with Amsterdan Falafeshop! Currently, they’re located in Adams Morgan at 2425 18th Street, NW.

? How to order:

“This is how the menu works: When you come into our shop, you can order a falafel sandwich, fries, a brownie, soda and/or lemonade. Once you order a falafel, we fix you a fresh sandwich within 2-5 minutes. You can see us frying it right in front of you! Then you get to use your creative talent and imagination to garnish your sandwich with some of our 21 sauces and toppings.

Our garnish bar has a wide array of sauces, salads and pickles that encompass both traditional Middle Eastern and Dutch influences, with cream sauce and garlic flavors. We offer a selection of dressings for your fries as well, including traditional Dutch mayo, homemade peanut ‘saus’, malt vinegar, Old Bay seasoning and ketchup.

If you would like to cater a party or a meeting, we offer catering at various levels. We serve the salads in black, plastic, lazy-suzan-type platters, and then platters for the pita and falafel balls.”

Prices: Range from $5.50 to $11.50, depending on the amount of pitas and falafel balls you want, or need, to eat. ?

And if you’ve fallen in love with them (serves not included), take a look at at their cool stuff, which includes funny t-shirts for man and beast.
