oasis falafel

    Move over Mamoun...

    by nylon · August 07, 2013

    To anyone living in Manhattan, the word "falafel" automatically takes you to Mamoun’s effervescent shacks in East and Greenwich Village. But the smell of Mamoun’s deep-fried chickpeas doesn’t reach the depths of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Instead, the locals are privy to Oasis on North 7th and Bedford, and let us tell you; the smells are just as enticing, if not an inch more. Oasis, run by Lebanese-Americans, sells everything from falafel to tabbouli, a salad with parsley, tomato and cracked wheat cut so finely you can barely tell what it is. The place is a Middle-Eastern haven, selling massive falafel sandwiches, with Mediterranean pickles, hummus, tahini and a type of chilli found in Lebanon, Greece and Italy, for three dollars a pop.Explore the full menu out HERE and if you see us there stuffing our faces...don't judge!
