Falafel's are amaaazing

Posted on 02 / 08 / 2014

We've been here a few times & have been happy each time. The first time we both got the chickn cheesesteak which was pretty tasty. Not the best I've ever had, but it's only place to get a veggie cheesesteak in Northeast Philly (that I know of). Note - if you're vegan, there is no vegan cheese available. The owners are really nice - last time when we were leaving they told us we had to come back & try the falafel's & told us they deliver as well. We went back today - my partner got the chickn cheesesteak again & I went with the falafel & hummus platter. That shit was goooooood. A bunch of warm pitas, about 8 small falafel's that were to die for, a bunch of veggies, and delicious hummus. Note for vegans - the white sauce has sour cream in it, when I asked for the dish without it, they provided me extra hummus at no extra charge which was awesome. But besides that, it's a great gem for veggies/vegans in the Northeast!

Pros: Yummy vegan/veg food, Friendly staff, Large portions
Cons: Only a few tables if you're eating in

Hunt Down Secret Recipes at Little Nicky's

Posted on 07 / 13 / 2013

Stopped into Little Nicky's at Cottman and Castor Avenues (NE Philadelhia) this afternoon after passing by for over a year... (busy intersection). Wasn't aware that they had a few vegan sandwiches! I tried their "Veggie Steak" and I was thrilled to discover that it was delicious and well prepared. Owner, Nick states that he doesn't have vegan cheese, but no worries, I was completely satisfied with his vegan steak and roll. Also had his sweet potato fries which were also yummy! Great prices for a quick lunch. Going to head back more often and try his falafel, which he tells me is a 'secret recipe' from his homeland. Nick was a really hospitable individual and I hope his business expands with additional vegan offerings.

Pros: hospitable service, affordable, well prepared food
Cons: few vegan selections, no parking, small seating area
