Sometimes I’m in the mood for the falafel but not the pita pocket that houses it. The bread can fill you up, limiting enjoyment of the crispy goodness within. This salad eliminates the pita and turns the falafel into “croutons” topped with a dressing of tahini and tangy bits of preserved lemon. Think of it as falafel without the baggage.

Consider getting your salty, crunchy fix from a slightly more exotic source: the Israeli kitchen. Moroccan cigars, or sigariyot, as they’re called in Israel, are a staple at mizrahi (North African) eateries and beyond. When done right, they’re world-beatingly good; the combination of crispy shell and tender, flavorful filling is irresistible, and not as hard to pull off as you’d imagine.

      Caravan in Clerkewell helped my hangover. Merci!

      Caravan London

      Caravan is a coffee roastery, restaurant and cocktail bar in the busting Exmouth Market in London’s Clerkewell neighborhood. Their mending, hair-of-the-dog brunch sorta of knocked my socks off—and not because of an engergizing cocktail made with ginger-infused Sipsmith gin. But that didn’t really hurt.
