My thoughts on the Atlanta food scene, with occasional forays into the world beyond. We talk about both restaurant reviews and recipes.

Hovan Gourmet is one of the stands in the Perimeter Mall food court. I walked past it for years without paying any real attention. I finally wandered over to take a look to find multiple reviews they posted extolling their falafel. I've been there several times now, which should tell you that I like it.
This is the falafel combo. The falafel is prepared as a sandwich wrapped in pita; you can also get it straight. I'm relatively untrained in such matters but I've eaten quite a bit of falafel at various places lately and I do think theirs is very good. You can taste the richness of the peas very clearly. The patties are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. And I think the crown of chips around the hummus is just plain cute.
