they don't weigh bowls! - Edit

So apparently at Amsterdam Falafel, they weigh your build-your-own salad bowls. But at this L'enfant location, they don't weigh anything! So you can build a salad bowl as big as you want it. Nice. I love the hummus, tahini, and peanut sauces, but it's easy to go overboard. All in all, AF can get a little greasy and heavy-feeling, but if you take it easy you'll be fine. I think it's a better deal to get a huge salad bowl and a pita on the side; you get more food and you can build your sandwich as you go instead of trying to rush and shove ingredients between your falafel balls in the line.

Pros: build your own, yummy sauces, lots of vegan options

Cons: staff is hit-or-miss friendly, not open on weekends, can be greasy

best falafel I've ever had - Edit

Though not entirely vegan, they seemed pretty close from what I saw. Their falafel was so good, and building your own is a nice touch.

Mostly vegan but disappointed they added chicken - Edit

Updating my review below to note that they recently added chicken. I think this is the only location of Amsterdam Falafel that has chicken. i was disappointed they did it so am changing my review from 5 stars to 4. Otherwise the rest of my old review still applies:

Amsterdam Falafel is a fabulous DC legend, and this is their newest (I think) location. You get to do all your own toppings, so you can choose super healthy fresh veggies like cucumber salad, garlicky parsley, tomato topping, a variety of pickled veggies, etc. -- all very flavorful! If you want more calories, the falafels are divine, and they also have toppings like really rich hummus and baba ganoush. There are just a very small number of non-vegan toppings and sauces. You can either get a bowl or a pita. Very reasonably priced (by weight for bowls or one price for the pita).

falafel - Edit

All the ingredients today were vegan except for two, the choice of toppings was excellent and everything was really fresh and delicious. I'll definitely go back before I leave DC.
