Green Olive - New York Nov 25, 2011
I needed a quick bite for lunch and ran across this place not far from the United Nation. It serves your basic Mediterranean sandwiches, but I ordered a falafel. The price was reasonable, similar to what you would pay in a typical city in the middle east. My falafel was freshly made so the garbanzo bean patty was hot, crunchy and full of flavor. I've had falafel in the middle-east before and this place is at par. I've googled later that some of the reviews were negative, but may be it's a hit and miss. The place is full of religious folks (guys wearing Kippah and gals with long skirt) lining up for lunch, so it got to be good. The facade of the store also lined with Jerusalem stone, which made me feel like I'm in Israel. The entertainment is the constant shouting between the lady, who's taking the order, and her husband (I think) doing the cooking...lots of chutzpah!

I haven't really joined the falafel bandwagon yet.
