Falafel is a typical Middle Eastern snack, usually served in a pita that serves as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as a tabou; “falafel” most sometimes refers to a wrapped sandwich that is prepared in this manner. The falafel balls are layered with salads, pickled vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with sauces based on tahini. Even, Falafel balls can be eaten by themselves as a snack.
