Hole-in-the-wall falafel joint in Little Five Points..
Along with El Myr, this tiny space practically defines L5P casual and quick eating. The shoebox-of-a-space is lodged a few doors down from the Variety Playhouse, luring in starving artists with torpedo-sized gyros, a side-room hookah lounge and a short menu that pleases the Greek fans and super vegetarians (vegan samosas and falafel). Service isn’t warm but it doesn’t need to be. This is a NYC corner stand packed into our city’s most eclectic and colorful neighborhood. The falafel is some of the best in Atlanta: crunchy outside but still upholding a wonderful flavor and soft, grainy texture inside. Liberally stuffed in a grilled pita, the wrap is loaded down with salad, tzatziki and goosed with hot sauce. At $7, it’s an expensive for a “cheap” sandwich but it is one that will leave you satisfied without feeling overly full.
