Today's Frugal Floozie Friday feature is Haifa Falafel, a friendly and welcoming restaurant offering "Mediterranean cuisine made the Haifa way."
Several of the salads and sandwiches cost less than our mandatory $5 period, let alone $5 per person. It was difficult to choose among the variety, from a pita burger to traditional falafal to chicken shawarma.
But I was in the mood for something unique and different, so I ordered the Majadara Sandwich for $4.82, which offered nutritious lentils and caramelized onions. Sandwiches also come with a tremendous variety of accompaniments: tahini, hummus, garlic spread, Haifa sauce, tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, pickles, cabbage, lettuce and carrots ... whew! Each bite brought different flavors and textures; it was crisp, salty, spicy, vibrant, sweet, crunchy and exceptionally good!
The sandwich was absolutely enormous, and could easily have been halved and shared with someone else. (As it was, I ate half for dinner and then saved the rest for breakfast the next day; it was fabulous both times.) If sharing the meal, you could also buy a couple of the lovely desserts - baklava, rice pudding or mahalabia (milk pudding) - for $2.50 each and still stay within our budget.
For a quick, nutritious meal at a Frugal Floozie Friday price, I highly recommend Haifa Falafel!
