Falafel sandwich is a yummy replacement for chicken/meat shawarma and are a perfect fit for vegetarians. The fritters (falafel) are now found around the world as a replacement for meat and as a form of street food.

      Falafel is a deep-fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both.
