No. 71: Falafel From Sunrise Pita


Like authentic Israeli street food, Sunrise Pita is

cheap, fast, fresh, and kosher. Start with crispy, hand made

falafels, fried to order until they're golden brown with a soft, warm interior. Then choose a bread type (pillowy lafa or grilled pita), and fill it with any of a half-dozen salads and

sauces -- tomato and cucumber, roasted eggplant, pickled cabbage, and

spiced onions -- plus hummus, tahini sauce, and spicy chili paste. It's

messy fare, but you can also enjoy it as a more organized platter.
