How to order in the shop
This is how the menu works: When you come into the Falafelshop, you can order a falafel sandwich, fries, a brownie, soda and/or lemonade. Once you order a falafel, we fix you a fresh sandwich within 2-5 minutes. You can see us frying it right in front of you! Then you get to use your creative talent and imagination to garnish your sandwich with some of our 21 sauces and toppings. Now in our Davis Square shop, you can also order a bowl which you may fill from the bar.
Our garnish bar has a wide array of sauces, salads and pickles that encompass both traditional Middle Eastern and Dutch influences, with cream sauce and garlic flavors. We offer a selection of dressings for your fries as well, including traditional Dutch mayo, homemade peanut 'saus', malt vinegar, Old Bay seasoning and ketchup.
If you would like to cater a party or a meeting, we offer large orders at various levels (per-head quantities). We serve the salads in black, plastic, lazy-suzan-type platters, and then platters for the pita and falafel balls.
How to set up a larger order
The Falafelshop would love to create a large order for your function. Large orders are for 10 or more people. Just call or fax us at least 24 hours in advance to arrange your event, so we have the opportunity to confirm that we can execute it for you.
We prefer to create large orders for functions in the immediate vicinity because falafels must be served shortly after production to taste their best. The salad platters are prepared in advance, and we make the falafelballs 4 minutes before your scheduled arrival for pickup. So, don't be late. This ensures that you have the freshest product.
You are more than welcome to decide which salads you would prefer, or we would be happy to pick them for you. Platters come in lazy-susan style black plastic cater-wear, pitas are toasted, and balls are in a large plastic bowl with tented foil to keep warm, but not to allow too much steam to collect in the container.
We recommend that you place the food out for your guests immediately upon receiving it. If that is not possible, transfer the balls to an oven-safe platter and allow it to sit covered in the oven at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.
Below is a chart that will help you plan for your party needs, but please call us to receive a fax of our order form or print from the link above (pdf format) and fax your order to us.
