Good food, hygiene not so much

3 Posted on 04 / 08 / 2014

The place is very easy to access, it's near the Bourse (Beurs). I go there often. The only thing you can order there is a pita bread with 4 falafels. The falafels are excellent! There is a small salad bar with a few fresh veggie, prepared red cabage, prepared white cabage, olives, humus, etc. You pay 4,5€ for the falafels and can help yourself how many times you want at the salad bar. There are three sauces: one red-hot, two whites made probably from tahina, those seems not to be vegan as they probably contain dairy.

Owned by kind people.

It's well worth the price but the place is small and very simple. The hygiene has been improved but there is still more effort needed.

Pros: Cheap, Delicious falafel, Small business
Cons: Dirty, Small, No choice

This place was just what we were looking for!

Tasty falafel and a big portion of salad for € 4.50. Loved the tahini sauce. I wish we had one here in Switzerland too, I'd be a regular guest!

Very friendly owner.

Pros: cheap, delicious, friendly

Not so good

3 Posted on 08 / 18 / 2013

It's practical but not what I would call excellent. Falafels and salad bar are much tastier in Paris, Madrid or Amsterdam by Maoz. I didn't expect much comfort but this place is a little bit "extreme" with the tables directly on the sidewalk of a noisy main street and the salad bar didn't seem very hygienic. I prefer not to recommend the awful so called fruit juices from the fridge which are indeed sugared water with aromas.

Pros: No meat , Location and opening hours, Price
Cons: Too uncomfortable , Could be cleaner

Good falafel place

Tasty falafels, nice concept of adding your own vegetables, sauces and salad. Fast and cheap.

Pros: Fast, Cheap, Choose-your-own-vegetables
Cons: A bit unimaginative sauces, Limited menu, Rather dreary place

free vegetables as much as you like - nice falafel

4 Posted on 06 / 03 / 2013

It's a tiny place in the busy heart of Brussels and they only serve one thing: falafels in a pita bread. Sauce and vegetables are "free" - you can take as much as you want from a small salad bar. Some sauces are (very) hot, they also have hummus. Tasty, cheap and quick!

Pros: free veggies, refillable!, relatively cheap (€4)
Cons: tiny, not much place to sit, owner is difficult to understand

Loved this place

The falafel was really really good, and cheap. You buy a 4 euro falafel and get however much salad from the bar you want, there is a good selection of vegan options. Mr Falafel himself is friendly :) Open till late which is helpful.

Pros: Great falafel

great falafel

4 Posted on 08 / 26 / 2012

the falafel was tasty, the salad bar very varied, and for 4 euros very good value. i recommend it.nice that they don't serve any meat.the mayonnaise is not vegetarian, it has eggs in it, so be aware, a few toppings are mixed with mayonnaise, so ask before to be sure.

Pros: tasty, fresh, cheap
Cons: mayonnaise

I really love "Mr Falafel"! The idea that you can prepare your own falafel is great! Morever, the offered fillings for your falafel are varied and tasty. Furthermore, the server was very friendly and helpful. He even told me and my boyfriend in detail which food is vegan or not. And he gave us an additional bowl so that we were able to make our own salad from the offered fillings. In addition, this restaurant is really cheap and you could call it "all you can eat" (because of the additional bowls).
Unfortunately, we have discovered this awesome restaurant at the end of our trip to Brussels :-(.

Pros: Prepare your own falafel with great food, Very friendly staff and nice atmosphere, Cheap and "all you can eat"
Cons: Nothing

Fresh falafel!

4 Posted on 06 / 16 / 2012

Definitely a unique place, the falafel is made from fresh paste and tastes good! The staff is really friendly and the atmosphere feels nice. We visited this place several times when in Brussels and were satisfied each time. The place itself is tiny (there are couple of small tables) and maybe not the cleanest of places, but food is definitely fresh. very nice dressings also (tajini, parsley sauce, chili sauce etc.)

Pros: Friendly staff, You can fill your own pita , fresh falafel

Cheap and delicious

If you are looking for a cheap place to eat your vegan falafel, this is the place to go. Unfortunately, they don't offer the salad buffet as a "salad" menu option (like other Mr. Falafel places do, e.g. in Amsterdam) but only to fill your pitta with all the stuff you like. It's nevertheless worth a stop and only a short walk from the city centre.

Pros: Friendly and English speaking staff, Good filling options, Good price
Cons: No "salad only" option

There are a lot of pita snacks in Brussels but this one is definitely unique!!!! (as you immediately understand when noticing the huge word 'VEGETARIAN' on its window!)
