My favorite falafel sandwich in Qatar

If you’ve read my previous post, I mentioned that that restaurant is having my second favorite falafel sandwich. You wanna know where my ultimate favorite is from? *drumroll* …It’s from Gad in Mathar Qadeem!

Oh my Gad! This Egyptian restaurant’s falafel sandwich is to live for. It’s filled to hilt, messy to eat and you just get this feeling of wanting to give up but just can’t because it’s so good. I’m raving about this because I’ve eaten a loooot of them from various restaurants and none ever made my tastebuds feel this way. Yep, that’s fa-love-fel, my friends.

The place is nothing fancy; typical family restaurant-type wherein you go in to eat and out once you’re done (think in the lines of Turkey Central Restaurant). Haven’t actually eaten there yet but did order for take-outs. And yes, their other foods like the tarb (Egyptian style kofta), kofta, kebab, lambchops are also muy deliciosó.

Now, now let’s go back to the sandwich. The falafel they make is the thin type but full to the bite and crispy, even when it gets cold.

The kuboos (circular and flat Arabic bread, sort of like pita) are handmade in the restaurant so freshness is guaranteed. It’s then stuffed with fries, a spicy tomato sauce, fried eggplant, greens and tahina. A full meal in itself! It’s one of the best ways to spend QR5 on.

So far, this is my favorite and best falafel I’ve had in Qatar.

How about you; where’s your favorite falafel place?
