While everything at the lunch spot is great, the ‘spicy red’ falafel stands out the most amidst the great flavors offered. The falafel is made with a traditional chickpea base and then mixed with a house made harissa. If you haven’t had harissa before, you’re missing out. It’s a spicy red paste that is a mix of roasted red peppers, spicy peppers, and garlic. The spicy falafel fits in perfectly with the freshly made pita or over your tabbouleh salad, which cuts out the heat the fried ball of chickpea offers.
While the falafel does pair well with the stellar entrees that Moshe’s serves, it stands alone as well. Its slight spice packs enough flavor that you will be craving it throughout the rest of the day. Top it with a little bit of the homemade tahini, and you’re left with a meal that is out of this world.
Moshe’s Golden Falafel opened its first location off of McCullough in the
3910 McCullough Ave., (210) 994-9838 and 300 E. Houston St. (210) 966-0333.
