I was feeling nostalgic for Paris the other day (when am I not?) and in particular the great meal we had at the Number 1 restaurant in Paris, the inimitable L’as du Fallafel in the Marais. Take out or sit down, cheek by jowl with other fans, completely ‘oinked’ out with fresh Fallafel, pita, lamb, gyro and more.
I made some ginormous imitations of the namesake product the other nite. I started by quick pickling some red onion in cider vinegar with sugar and spices. Then I made some homemade tziziki and microwaved the fallafels from Trader Joe’s.
I made you a movie to follow along!
