Have you been to Falafels yet

I don't like the food courts at shopping malls. All of them have the same chain restaurants and since I only go on weekends, they are overly crowded. But in the past couple of months I have made umpteen trips to the food court at newly opened Oberoi Mall. All for Falafels.

Falafels is the McDonalds of Arabic food. They have hummus, Baba ghanoush, falafels, pickles all lined up so when you order its just ready for you to pick up and go. There's quite a variety you can order there, including desserts. But I only ever order hummus with falafels. Its typical fast food style : a plate full of hummus drizzled with a few spoons of tahina and dotted with falafels. Plus a couple of warm pitas.

This is one store bought hummus I've truly liked, and Tahina gives it a nice edge. They also let you take pots of hummus and other dips home. Which is perfect for me for days when I am hungry but don't really know what I want to eat. Or for days when I want to eat this favorite food because I am happy. Or when I get awards!

Yes, another award coming up. Andhra Flavors has made me her blogging friend forever. Thanks so much!



The following rules apply to this award:

I would like to pass on the first four awards to Bharti, notyet100, Bhags and Swati. The fifth one goes to Pragyan, the newest reader on my blog.

I also realized that I have been hoarding the Rockin' Girl Blogger Award.
