Besides burritos, falafel is another contentious subject matter in the Boston food world. Everyone seems to be in some sort of camp. Granted, this Bostonist hasn't done extensive research, but Shawarma King on Beacon Street in Brookline serves up one damn good sandwich.
The falafel are made up of a mixture of chick pea and fava bean, flavored with plenty of parsley and garlic. The crispy little balls are served with tomatoes, a mild pickle spear, tons of onion slices, a bit of parsley, and a good amount of nutty tahini sauce. For the falafel roll-up, the fillings are all surrounded by grilled pita bread, adding extra crunch to the sandwich. For $5, that's one filling and delicious meal.
