L'as du Fallafel- Paris

This is one of the 'must eat food' when you visit Paris. L'as du Fallafel offer one of the best Fallafel that you cannot resist. This hole in the wall restaurant consist of indoor seating as well as a takeaway counter. Do note that there will be table charge if you decide to eat in.  It basically sells kebab wrap in assorted meat and vegetables.

Menu clearly written in English at the takeaway counter

You will be able to see how the kitchen works while the staffs preparing your orders. Lots of ingredients are stuffed into the pita bread.

 When we arrived there at about 1.30pm, the queue was quite long. Do not be alarmed by the queue as it moves quite fast. We joined the queue, made our order and payment with a guy and thereafter he issued us the order ticket. The queue is less than 15 minutes. When you reach the window, you will need to pass your order ticket to the guy by the window, and he will assemble your order for you.

Shawarma (Lamb + Turkey meat) 

Extremely saucy and filled with generous amount of shredded cabbage, tomatoes, egg plants and tahini. The  meats can be found at the top and middle later of the wrap. The pita bread is warm and soft and you can easily bite it off. Although it consist of lamp and turkey, I am not able taste the difference of both meat with so much sauce added on it. Overall slightly spicy due to the chili sauce added. I really enjoy every bite of  this Shawarma wrap.

Fallafel Special

Yes, the most popular item - Fallafel sandwich. As before, it is stuffed with lots of vegetables like shredded cabbage, tomatoes, egg plants and tahini. The deep-fried Fallafel is made up or either chickpeas or fava beans which I am not so sure of, but it is excellent! Very crispy on the outside but moist in the inside.
The fried eggplant is terrific too!!

Forks and serviettes are available to reduce the mess that you are getting into.

Ta Da!! our food!! The only different between the Fallafel and Shawarma is that Fallafel is totally vegetarian while Shawarma is not. 

Verdict 4/5

Good food but slightly expensive for street food. But definitely worth it.
