Zabak's Mediterranean Cafe

Zabak's Mediterranean Café is a spotless little walk-up service restaurant with marble floors and fewer than 20 tables. If you have visitors who are craving falafel sandwiches, this is the place to take them. Zabak's falafels are the best in the city. Crunchy on the outside and bright green and spicy hot on the inside, these chickpea patties make awesome sandwiches. The restaurant is run by the children of George Zabak, who made the falafel famous in Houston at a now-shuttered restaurant called Mama's Po'Boys.
