Drink pairing tips

  • Go for Rosé with falafel

    For an elevated experience, pair your falafel with Rosé. This combination works particularly well because this pink wine counterbalances the dense texture of the falafel.


  • Chardonnay with your falafel

    When considering what goes best with falafel, we recommend a glass of Chardonnay, it truly complements the dish as it enhances flavour.


  • The perfect match for your falafel

    Experts recommend pairing a falafel with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, a popular white wine.

Factoids

  • 24 pounds of falafel ball

    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!

  • September = Arab festival

    If it’s September and you’re in The United States, then we have a surprise for you! They host the South Bay Falafel Festival there! Head on down and enjoy the amazing food stands.

  • A long time ago

    medieval period gave us something tasty, the falafel! This tasty dish was bestowed upon us by Egypt.
