  • I may have missed this if it was mentioned somewhere on SV - apologies if it was - but Taim has a new food truck. I got a falafel sandwich there today for $5.75. It was the green variety, which appears to be the only one they have at the truck. It was every bit as delicious as the falafel from Taim on Waverly. I was pleased to see someone bringing good falafel to midtown. The truck moves daily, but they tweet their whereabouts.

  • Taim is so delicious and relatively inexpensive. Tucked away into a super tiny spot on Waverly Pl- it is great for falafel (the green is the best one) and hummus. The pitas are nice and fluffy. It can get super crowded though- so don't expect to get a seat if you go during prime times.

  • Review by alf-redo on January 28, 2009:

  • A good falafel, though a stretch to say 'best'. The spicy falafel (harissa) isn't that spicy but still good as is their mint/parsley/cilantro (green), and their pita bread is ok- not freshly made, but grilled so better than average. The fries are also better than average, though a little soggy and their dipping sauce isn't vegan (nor is their baba ganoush!).
    Cool looking smoothies though I didn't try one. Space is tiny and no restroom. In that area I would probably go to Soy and Sake or SNice instead unless I specifically wanted falafel. Oh, and staff is nice.

  • Review by eefanugget on September 10, 2008:

  • Incredible.
    Three different kinds of falafel. I like the harissa.
    Cantaloupe Ginger smoothie.
    Their pita is homemade and you can taste the difference.
    The seating is limited but falafel is a walking meal. Wander around the corner to that rad bookstore.
    ALSO their french fries are WORTH IT.
    So, go hungry. Get a sandwich (the platters are a bargain too), a smoothie and some fries.
    All makes a satisfying meal.
    Mind you they get mad busy. THAT IS BECAUSE THE FOOD ROCKS.
