Falafel is at its best when it has the yin and the yang -- crisp on the outside and soft on the inside.
These meatless wonders show the depth of rich flavors that are possible in snackable form. You can dip them in a tahini or tzatziki bath, stuff them into a pita, or display them on a platter with hummus and tabbouleh. Regardless, they are the stars of the show.
From kosher and traditional to wacky and green with peas and fava beans, what follows are the top falafel balls in Miami.

10. Pita Loca
For more than a dozen years, Pita Loca has been serving delicious falafel balls in either a pita ($6.99) or baguette ($8.99) in South Beach. If you thought taking a regular, and doubly unkosher, ham and cheese sandwich to the beach was good, try these balls between bread. You can also opt for a falafel plate ($12.99) that is like a trip around the world with French fries, Israeli salad, and tahini.
9. R House
For a sweeter and greener falafel, try R House. It's a very, very fine falafel ($13). It has the deep, satisfying flavor of traditional chickpea balls with a tinge of newness. The sweetness contrasts the tangy chunks of heirloom tomatoes, cucumber, feta, olives, and tzatziki.Next Page
