Respond to Review of Maoz Vegetarian - Old Compton
Review: Small space open late, for grabbing something to eat on the fly. White lit, short, narrow bar and a couple of wooden tables if you need to eat in. You can get falafel with the individual toppings/ salad you want or choose a meal deal which is basically falafel and salad from the salad bar or falafel with aubergine and hommus in pitta with chips and salad, one pound extra to add beverage. The pitta is round pocket pitta and it is propped in a cardboard stand which is more conducive to eating and walking. Still to find a kebab shop in London that sells falafel rolls/ wraps the falafel in lavash/ mountain bread as done in the Gulf states, Germany, Australia, anywhere else? If this were to start, kebab sales would surely increase greatly as it increases ease of eating them whether stationery or walking/ portability - massive attraction for kebabs. Falafel is the soft instead of crispy type. The tastiest falafel I've had was in Gulf/ Germany. Hommus has a lot of tahini in it. Tastes almost like pure tahini, very peanutty. Salad is self serve from a bar which includes olives, baby aubergines, coleslaw and couscous amongst other items. There are a range of sauces which you can add including coriander, green and red chilli. Falafel in pitta was a decent, square meal. Service is brisk and food comes fast. Value is good for a filling bite/ meal in this area, at five pounds 90 pence for the number one meal deal - falafel in pitta, described above.
