If you want Middle Eastern fast food, look no further than Mamoun’s Falafel. This decades-old Middle Eastern chain serves falafel, shawarma, and kebabs in a traditional space. Mamoun’s Falafel has been serving quick bites in a traditional space since 1967. It’s a good place to try falafel and shawarma if you’re in the mood for a quick lunch or dinner.
Mamoun’s Falafel has opened its fifth location in New Jersey, and is planning to open two more by the end of this year. Its latest location is in the Wall Promenade shopping center, and is the company’s tenth overall. The New Jersey franchise is owned by Prospect Capital Restaurants, which operates the company’s locations in New Brunswick and Wall. Two additional locations are slated to open in Paramus and East Rutherford.
Mamoun’s Falafel is a New York City institution. It was established in 1971 and has gained a reputation as the most authentic falafel in the city. The food is made from simple, natural ingredients and imported spices. The restaurant’s food has been featured on the Food Network, included in Eater’s list of NYC’s most iconic sandwiches, and on the top ten places to eat before you die.
Mamoun’s Pho is a great choice for a fast, cheap meal. The soups cost $8, $9, or $10, depending on size. You can add spring rolls for $2 and get a combo beef and shrimp pho for $3 more.
