Dorie Greenspan (2009) “… the pita is very thick, which is just what it needs to be because what’s tucked into its pocket is heavy, wet and unruly.  And so delicious, too…

David Lebovitz (2007) “… you can’t come to Paris and not have a fallafel at L’As du Fallafel. It just isn’t done.”

    I love their falafel! It’s the best. Nothing in the States can compare. Looking forward to my next visit….in March.

    Yes, it’s messy. What did you expect?

    No, no, no! Maybe something bad happened to L’as du Fallafel between 2009 and 2015. This place has scary food. Before you risk eating there, look at the servers, the crowds, and most of all, the food. There is nothing here that displays any care or regard for creating ambience, and the food looks as sloppy and unappetizing as the wait staff and the restaurant. And the food tastes as bad as it looks.

    Most filling meal in Paris for only 5 euros 50. Hands down the best falafel I have ever had.

    I dream of L’As du Fallafel when I’m away – all American falafels have suffered from comparison so far. The marinated eggplant just puts it over the top for me. The long lines at the order window are meaningful – and they have it down to such a good system that even the longest line only takes a few minutes of waiting. I’ve found that service inside and out is friendly and efficient. It will be my first meal stop when I hit Paris this fall. Hmmm…think they’re open for breakfast??

    Just had my first one of these last week and it was as delicious as everyone says. The flavors of the “original” meld together so perfectly and we voted this our best meal of a week in Paris! I don’t just love standing while eating something messy, so we were happy to sit inside and it was just as much of an authentic experience as standing around with the masses in the street.
