Falafel is to Lebanon like the Starbucks Coffee in the US and the Second Cup in Canada. It is as popular as that, and as consumed. It is another one of our traditional foods that have traveled the world and settled, in same or different versions, in different countries. Adopted from Easy Lebanese Recipes.

How to Make Falafel Wrap

Falafel is mainly eaten in Sandwich (Wrap) or with pita bread when part of a Mezza menu. In order for you to enjoy this Falafel recipe to its fullest, here is how you make the Falafel Wrap:

  1. On a Lebanese Pita Bread, align in the center 3 freshly cooked Falafel balls, and press on gently to smash them a little.
  2. Pour on 4-5 tbsp of Tahini Sauce (I love mine generous with Tahini, aka, I go for even more!).
  3. Top them with Tomatoes, chopped Fresh Parsley, sliced Radish, and Lebanese cucumber pickles and/or turnip pickles.

That is the traditional Lebanese Falafel Wrap!

Some like to add lettuce and onions. You might, but having grown up eating the right Falafel Wrap, I discard any other added vegetables that mend with its original amazing taste.


1/2 cup Dry chickpeas soaked overnight (12h) then drained
1 cup Dry Fava Beans (skinless) soaked overnight (12h) then drained
1 Onion (small) chopped
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 tsp Dry Cilantro
1 tsp Dry parsley
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground cumin
1/4 tsp Pepper
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Baking Soda
2 tbsp Vegetable oil


Preparing the Falafel Paste

  1. Beans and Chickpeas must be well dried from the water before proceeding. In a food processor, mix Beans, chickpeas, garlic and onions, and chop well.
  2. Add the baking soda, all the spices, and salt, and whisk well into a coarse thick paste.
  3. Preheat your panggangan to 356F (or 200C). Divide the paste into 20 patties, pressing them lightly between your palms, and place them on an oiled non-stick panggangan tray.
  4. Roast the patties for 20 minutes or until crispy and golden brown on both sides.

Serving: Hot

  1. Place them into a serving plate, and decorate, if you want, with fresh herbs: parsley or mint.
  2. Have a Tahini Sauce bowl on the side, Lebanese pita bread, Lebanese cucumber pickles, or Lebanese Beet pickles, and some cut tomatoes.
  3. For Falafel Wrap, refer to the recipe in the article above. Enjoy!
    Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
