Heights Falafel is cheap. That’s the first thing you should know. The second is that the food is like a really good halal cart. This might not sound remarkable, but if you put a halal cart in a storefront, it gains a lot more mainstream appeal. That isn’t to say that this is your typical falafel place. If it had the locations (and hours) of Mamoun's, it would clean up. The falafel is better, the ingredients are fresher, and you don’t have to be drunk to enjoy it.
