Maoz Vegetarian Falafel @ Paris, France

I’ve always been interested in middle eastern food and when I found out Paris has two famous falafel restaurants (Maoz and L’As Du Falafel) located very near to Notre Dame Cathedral, I vowed to try ’em.

What’s falafel?

Falafel is a deep-fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both. Falafel is usually served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as lafa. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces. ~ source Wiki

Our lunch, Maoz falafel grand @ €4.90. It was SUPER DUPER YUMMYLICIOUS. Words can’t describe my feeling at that time. It was the best meal I had in Paris! The falafel balls is REAL tasty.

We returned again to that area at dinner time (after our cooking class at La Cuisine Paris) looking for L’As Du Falafel but couldn’t find the shop so we went back to Maoz and this time we bought 2 x Maox falafel medium @ €4.40 each.

I would suggest to order falafel grand as it has more of the delicious falafel balls!

Besides France, Maoz Vegetarian; a fast service vegetarian falafel restaurant can be found in USA, Netherlands, London and Spain.

    I love falafel too. My friend intro me to it couple years ago and I am still hooked to them. And the next I really love is hummus as dips – thick dips. Did you try hummus – ground up chickpeas? Make my mouth water now! 🙂

      Nope never tried hummus before but I heard it’s very yummy. Hard to get fresh one in Malaysia. Saw packaged hummus being sold in supermarket but they’re super expensive.
