Respond to Review of CLOSED: Falafel Jenien
by wildfang

Review: The first review for this place made me curious so I went by last week to try out the falafel sandwich. Stupidly, I simply relied on hack-man's review saying it's all vegan apart from the cheese so I didn't ask about what sauce was going to be used - the falafel definitely didn't come with a vegan sauce. I'm very sure it was yoghurt sauce (it was dark so I could only taste, not see^^). Next time I will ask for some hummus instead of sauce. Apart from that, something in the sandwich was too salty for my taste. They also do proper dishes to eat at their stall such as a hummus plate which I might try out next - but not without making sure it's vegan. Over all, it's really cool that there is a totally vegetarian falafel stall, especially in Neuk├Âlln. The owner is a very friendly man aswell. I will go there again.

I have also been here and there are definitely vegan sauces available, absolutely 100%. Maybe they do have a yoghurt sauce and halloumi cheese if you want it but the owner will help you with your choice if you ask. I would never put a sauce on my falafel without double checking what it is first. The sauce I had was tahini which of course is made from sesame and is vegan.

To Wildfang: Hi, glad you found Falafel Jenien based on my review. I'm sorry the sauce may not have been vegan. From what I can remember the owner told us it was sesame butter (tahini) which of course is vegan. Maybe it was in your case, or it might have been a different sauce. It's certainly something to be sure about next time. Can't believe how many more vegeterian & vegan places have opened since I was last in Berlin in August 2010. Best wishes, hack_man
