Respond to Review of Amsterdam Falafelshop
by DC Vegan
Review: If you're in need of a quick and simple bite, check out the Amsterdam Falafelshop. As someone else pointed out, it's just falfel and fries, a.k.a., frites (and some non-vegan brownies) and a top-your-own bar with mostly vegan toppings. The falafels are cooked fresh and are spiced just right. The frites are hot and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. The person working the fryer will ask if you want salt, but there are also alternate seasonings for your frites. Sometimes a small wheat and a small frites, which is how I place my order, is too much for me. I'm glad I live in the area, as there is hardly any seating in the restaurant. It's easiest for me to get my falafel to go and eat it at home. If you find yourself heading to the Falafelshop a lot, get a frequent diner card--if you get eight falafels, your ninth is free. And yes, you must pay in cash, although there is an ATM near the soda machine.
