Small falafel/fries joint. Decent.

Decent place for falafel and fries. Very similar to a Maoz, if you're familiar with that.

Not bad, but not outstanding. I'd consider it one of those "if you're in the area" places, but not worth a special trip.

Pros: All-veg

Best falafel in Adam

Good stuff. And fries are fresh cut from real potatoes.

Another thing that makes this place great for falafel is the location. Sonny is in a pedestrian only area with a lot of cool bars and coffee shops.

Nice small but cozy place not far from Sarphati Park, reasonable prices (less than 10 euros for falafel menu, French fries and drink), friendly owner-chef who is always ready to offer variety of dressings and side dishes in addition to falafel. We found out about this place thanks to HappyCow and it didn't dissappoint us. We ate there several times during our stay in Amsterdam and were very satisfied with the food.

Pros: Delicious, Cheap, Not far from city center

Delish all-you-can-eat salad bar, ho-hum falafel

3 Posted on 11 / 12 / 2012

We stumbled upon this vegetarian falafel joint near the Albert Cuyp market and, being hungry and uncertain whether we'd find something equally meat-free and tempting in the 'hood, decided to take a gamble. The fellow behind the counter was friendly and helpful, explaining what was vegan and what wasn't (only the tzaziki wasn't vegan). We ordered falafel and had the choice of whole-wheat or regular pita, with eggplant or without. The salad-bar offerings were varied and tasty: curried chickpeas, hummus, tapenade, and lots of different salads and several hot sauces. Just like its competitor, Maoz, Sonny offers all-you-can-eat falafel fillings, so you don't have to feel shy about going back for seconds. The falafel itself was sort of boring; not a lot of flavor, unfortunately. At least it was filling and hot. The fries were good, too: crispy and hot. We also got a special vegan dipping sauce (a mix of hot sauces) instead of the mayo-based stuff they usually serve. We appreciated the interesting drinks--lychee, tamarind, coconot--and the tables out front. Later, we discoverd a Maoz right around the corner, but I'm glad we tried Sonny, if only for comparison's sake.

Pros: cheap, filling, mostly vegan
Cons: falafel lacked flavor, fast food

Sonny, yesterday my life was filled with rain

Picture the scene:

You've recently arrived in Amsterdam, it's nearly 10pm and you're very hungry, so you've headed out to an independent falafel place which has a good review on Happy Cow. You've checked the place's own website and it doesn't close until 11pm, so you have more than an hour until it closes. Great!

Now imagine your disappointment when the owner gruffly waves you away saying his kitchen is closed and he's not serving any more. Did you mis-read the website? No, he's just decided to knock off early.

Never mind, you can just nip next door to grab a burger, or some lasagne, right? Only you can't, because you're vegetarian or vegan and therefore have to be a bit more choosy about where you eat.

So, stomach rumbling, you get back on your bike and head back to the hotel to research somewhere else to eat...

Sonny: if your website advertises opening until 2300 then you should stick to those hours, okay? If you must close early, do it with a smile and an apology, not arrogance.


Cons: closes early without warning

AWESOME!

Located on a great street with outdoor seating and plenty of nearby bars & coffee shops, this place is delicious and priced well. Tons of serve yourself toppings (hummus, roasted carrots, sauces, pickled beets, cabbage, garbanzo beans in a curry sauce, etc etc etc). DELICIOUS! Also, try the roasted coconut water or the Ginger Beer. Yum. Sonny, the owner, was incredibly friendly too. Highly recommend!
