Yum- I have a newfound appreciation for baked falafel!
I'm glad I didn't read the Yelp reviews for Chickpea before going here because if I had I might have been more skeptical. I have wanted to try this place since moving in across the street a few months ago and yesterday I finally decided to head in.
The place was empty which seemed like a bad sign, but it might've just been that people were still coming home from work (it was a busy Wednesday). I decided to order the falafel platter with baba ganoush and hummus. The platter came with rice, 6 baked falafel, hummus (different flavors to choose from!), up to (4?) toppings, and hot whole wheat pita. I added feta for extra because, well, it's feta. The platter also came with a free drink- either a bottle of water or a can of soda (I got a water). I paid under $10 for all of this, which, in the city, is a friggen' bargain.
I brought my meal to Chelsea Pier to eat while I watched an outdoor movie (which I also recommend doing, btw), and it was delicious! The falafel was filling and honestly, I thought it was better than fried falafel, contrary to what everyone else is saying. Even the hummus and baba were above average, which is hard to do. Combined with the tahini sauce, rice, and feta, the falafel was incredible and filled me right up. I even had 3 falafel leftover after I was done that I still haven't eaten.
Check this place out for a quick, cheap, and healthy meal!
I love this place!
Every chance I'm in the area i always stop by for lunch.
Yes it is like a mediterrean subway, but the quality is not comparable. I always go with the platter with hummus, chicken, rice/lettuce and toppings. It is always consistent and yummy. Served with warm pita and sauce on the side if you ask (hot sauce, white sauce.) the hummus is sooo good.
The manager is always realllly nice and there to make sure everything is okay.
I did try the chickpea in pen station and got the same thing. Sorry to say it was horrible. Not sure if this location is the only good one..
In penn i do pick up breakfast from there, oatmeal or a pita sandwich with hardboiled egggs, hummus and some veggies which is good.
