Mamoun's: "Mamoun's - Cheap, Good Falafel" Top 5 Page for this destination Mamoun's Falafel Restaurant Tip by shutterlust


Mamoun's is known for providing NYU students and local Village residents with their share of falafel at $2 a pop (a little more of the schwarma and the kebabs). Not only is Mamoun's cheap, it's a fast, easy, convenient and YUMMY (which is the key). Sometimes you start to really CRAVE falafel and schwarma, well, at least, I know I do! And Mamoun's is always the answer. Or if you're travelling on a budget, it's a perfect way to get filled up without spending a fortune.

Mind you, the place is a tight little hallway type restaurant, with about seating for four people and two different tables so be prepared to buy your food and go (tip, head to Washington Square Park to sit and eat, al freco! Enjoy the street performers and enjoy your falafel!!)

Also, be prepared to order quickly. It's NY so everything moves fast. Know your order before you order it. Or people will start yelling....

Favorite Dish: The falafel, schwarma, and the kebabs. And some apple juice!
