My search for the best falafel in New York continues….
Gazala Place in Hell’s Kitchen (and its bigger, newer location on the Upper West Side) is the only place in New York to get Druze cuisine. The Druze are a religious people that live throughout the Middle East and have a fairly distinct cuisine. The most notable difference is their very large and thin pita breads cooked on a griddle called a sagg.
I’ve enjoyed many delicious meals at Gazala Place and am especially fond of all their breads and savory pies. On a recent meal, I paid special attention to their falafel, which was served as part of their appetizer sampler platter alongside hummus and labneh.
