A tasty combo of falafel and shawarma awaits hungry diners looking for a healthy alternative for lunch and dinner at Deep Ellum’s Amsterdam Falafelshop, a DC transplant that makes fresh falafel in house, crispy marinated lamb and plenty of accouterments that beg to be loaded in freshly baked pita. And then there are those deliciously crafted Dutch-style fries, frieten, that beg to be topped with one of many dressings provided for guest’s indulgence.
Order a bowl or pita in the form of falafel or shawarma, or nab a combo of the two, and load up the pita with your own desires from a bar loaded with fresh hummus, babaganouj, a vast assortment of vegetables and pickled everything for one delicious and over-the-top lunch or dinner.
Also available are a smattering of local brews to wash all this health down.
