Beirut Falafel Cafe and Bakery ~ Lebanese - Darlington

Can't decide between a falafel roll or a manoosh? Have both! Have it on a roll, have it in a bowl. At Beirut Falafel, oh the places you'll go!

Before we get all totally Dr. Seuss, you won't find any green eggs or ham here but you will find green falafel and pink pickles. There's a wide range of ways to have falafel and haloumi, folded, rolled and fried. All the best things come fried.

We first visited the store when it was in its early days of opening. The menu had more eat in options then, like loaded oregano manoosh (pizza) on real plates. The focus now is more on takeaway, grab and go for students. There's still haloumi manoosh and egg and cheese varieties, as well as the all popular za'atar. 

We also tried the salad bowl with pumpkin kebbeh. There are now a number of falafel bowls available, some vegan. Fights off the overindulgence in burgers and beers with a bowl of instant goodness.

For a takeaway to enjoy in the nearby park, try the straight up falafel roll with pink turnip pickles poking out (try saying that fast). There's just enough salad to keep the roll together and the falafel are crisp and green hued.

The loaded manoosh are the winners, a crisp on the outside za'atar pizza filled with crisp on the inside falafel, a swirl of tahini and salad. A haloumi cheese version sounds as good as it squeaks.
