Falafel Wrap

Falafel Wrap for delivery

With falafel, it’s all about the texture—you want soft on the inside, crisp on the outside.

They’re usually served in pita as a wrap and topped with lettuce, pickled veggies, hot sauce and a tahini-based sauce. For a falafel wrap and fries (and so much other yummy Mediterranean food), take a look at Jasmine Grill.
