For my taste, this is the most authentic Middle Eastern food in town and oh that pita. Other restauranteurs come her to buy pita in fact. In particular, loved the hummos and tabouleh -- extremely fresh and light. For more, check out my blog review, www.miamicurated.com
Best Falafel Miami 2008 - Oriental Bakery & Grocery Co.
Host: Welcome to The Dating Game. Tonight Sally will choose her dream match from among our three charming and eager contestants. Go ahead, Sally, ask your first question.
Sally: Number one, if you were a sandwich, what type would you be?
Number one: A falafel.
Sally: And why is that?
Number one: It's ethnic and hot, just like me, baby.
Sally: Oh great. Number two, same question.
Number two: A falafel, because it's not full of baloney, and neither am I!
Sally: How original. Number three?
Number three: A falafel.
Sally: What are you, fucking triplets?
Host: Please, Sally, this is a family show.
Number three: But I'd be a falafel sandwich from Oriental Bakery & Grocery, with a fresh mix of diced tomato and cucumber, a slight smear of the smoothest hummus in town, and a frolicking splash of sesame tahini. I'd be nattily dressed in a laffa jacket baked on premises, and retain a lightness about me — not greasy like number one, or heavy like number two. Oriental has been around since 1939, so I'd be a falafel with maturity steeped in experience. As one who appreciates world culture, I'd be surrounded by olives from Persia to Palestine to Peru. And I'm a fair and reasonable guy, just like the pricing here: $4.50 for a sandwich guaranteed to please.
Sally: Wow — add a jolt of hot sauce and my knickers are all yours.
