Drink pairing tips

  • Pair falafel with Chardonnay

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Chardonnay. This combination works particularly well because this white wine enhances flavour.


  • Sauvignon Blanc with your falafel

    If your food palns include Falafel, then you should consider helping it along with some white wine. We find that a Sauvignon Blanc, with its hits of tropical, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The perfect match for falafel

    Experts suggest pairing a falafel with a glass of Rosé, a popular pink wine.


Factoids

  • A 24 pounds feast

    Don’t you hate it when there is not enough food for seconds? This wasn’t a concern when the record was broken for the biggest falafel ball. Weighing in at 24 pounds there was more than enough falafel balls to go around!

  • International Falafel Day

    It’s International Falafel Day on June 12. You better not forget! Grab your falafel and celebrate!

  • September = Arab festival

    Perhaps you want to try something new out, have you considered a South Bay Falafel Festival? Give it some thought. Every year in Torrance, California, thousands of people attend the festival, adding to the appeal of the already charming city.
