When Smeerka's in town that means it is time to attack every favorite food spot of mine, in no particular order. I could, and often do, eat falafel sandwiches too many nights in a row. We visited two of my favorite spots, Mamoun's and Oasis.
Mamoun's avant et après:
This place is great, but there's something a little dry about their sandwich. The hot sauce is too hot. I always say I will skip it, but stubbornly end up putting 4-5 drops, as though the result will be different that particular time. When will I learn?
Oasis, photo courtesty of Get Sconed:
I am never disappointed with Oasis, I must say. Those pickles, the marinated onions... They load up on the sauce. It is hands down my favorite falafel in NYC, so much that I schlep the 45 minute subway ride all the way there just to get off the L, get a sandwich and come back!
