Props to you Marc4002 for starting a topic on falafal. I love Middle Eastern food, nothing better a a nice Falafal sandwich with a side of huumus or baba ganoush. Also, try the Shawarma if you run across it. If unfamilar it is smilar to gyros in that it is cooked on a spit but the taste is much different. I am not a red meat eater so I always get the chicken version and it is awesome.
If you are ever in the Chicagoland area check out Pita Inn for a terrific and cheap Middle Eastern meal. The location in Skokie also has a bakery/deli next door where you get fresh pita, hummus, etc to go.
