A while back, I posted something on social media about the really good falafel I’d eaten recently. Someone responded that I really needed to try the falafel at Grills & Greens in Rancho Cordova, so a few days ago, I drove over to do just that.
Grills & Greens has a very helpful menu, where they specify which items can be made vegan. I was momentarily distracted by the eggplant sandwich option, but then they gave me a sample of the falafel to try. It was delicious, with a combination of spices that I couldn’t quite identify. Whatever they were, they made all the difference between the run-of-the-mill falafel that many places serve and a falafel that was really special. That was all it took — I ordered the falafel sandwich combo.
What a combo it was! There was an enormous sandwich consisting of a thick flatbread stuffed full of falafel and dressed with tahini. In addition, there was a side of salad greens with vinaigrette and a large portion of hummus with more flatbread. Needless to say, it was way too much food to eat in one sitting and I had to take some of it home.
