Featuring “Mediterranean staples and a new take on New York falafel,” this busy and friendly strip mall quick stop boasts an endless array of filling side items like tabbouleh salad, baba ghanoush, and tzatziki to complement a variety of hummus plates, eggplant or falafel pita sandwiches, and spicy shakshuka.

Falafel Taco

30 Wheeler Ave, Pleasantville; 914.579.2526

If the word “Mexraeli” intrigues you, stop by to find out what it means. Inspired by the idea that “food should be passionate rather than indifferent,” this trendy trackside eatery combines falafel and tacos, as its name suggests. Led by a multicultural couple (he’s Jewish, she’s Mexican) and their vegan daughter, the restaurant serves a menu that is unique and vegetarian-friendly. Not only are there breakfast options like avocado toast, but also specialties such as vegan empanadas, Mexican latkes, and, of course, falafel tacos.
