falafel tlv - Edit

i visited the eatery during dinnertime on 22 june 2017, about a week into its opening.

the meal wasn't well presented - it was served in a paper bag on a dish - but i enjoyed it despite its, to me, rather hefty price tag (falafel in pita hkd75, a rather blah lemonana hkd 25, plus 10% service charge), especially as i kept discovering different tastes/textures as i bit through the pita - falafel, hummus, sauerkraut, etc.

"well, it's central; rent are high - much as i'd like to, i'll just not be able to patronise it as often as my budget allows", i thought.

the boss was friendly and hospitable the moment i entered and was eager for my opinion (i felt the pita could have been warmer/crispier and he said that could be prepared that way if so requested), and showed me the produce available for sale (sauerkraut, za'atar, etc). from what i was told, they can also cater to jains and those who don't eat onion/garlic, though advance notice is recommended in case supplies run out.

i'm very disappointed to learn that just a month later it has flip-flopped from its initial stance as a vegetarian restaurant to an omnivorous one selling chicken schnitzels (if chickens don't sell well, what next?) - albeit using separate cookware for veg/non-veg meals.

this change of stance was not announced on the restaurant's facebook page and i only knew about it when a friend forwarded me this article:

https://www.timeout.com/hong-kong/restaurants/falafel-tlv

it's not my place to question the management's decision, especially in HK's cut-throat business environment, but the fact that it now serves slaughtered chickens when it initially marketed itself as a purely vegetarian eatery, and still seemingly has no official announcement of this about-turn on its facebook page (where as of 27 aug 2017 it still goes by the name of "Hummus Falafel Vegetarian HK") - bumps it off my must-visit radar the next time i'm in central.
