In my time on this earth, I have done many things. Great things; painful things; things I have learned from. And in everything I have done, I have always looked for the positive outlook. The up-side. When I entered this eatery, I found myself reading a book by it's cover. The small space and confined environment led me to believe a heinous falsity. But when I purchased my falafel, and I took my first bite, my world changed. I felt the smooth hummus, perfectly complimented by the slight spice of the falafel run through my mouth like a child's toy train set when it perfectly fits on the tracks. I swallowed my first bite and I looked up to the man who served me, I mouthed the words to him, 'thank you'. He responded, 'That'll be $4.95." A small price to pay, for the most immaculate and delectable treat that has ever graced God's good earth. I exited the now ever growing plateau of amazement, and walked up the street, consuming my sandwich more and more with each step. I hadn't traveled but two blocks until I looked down and saw; my food had become exhausted. I felt a tear travel down my cheek. Not of depression. Not of loss. But of enlightenment. Thank you, Maoz Vegetarian, for showing me what good food really is.
Simple hole in the wall shop for a quick bite along the 7 train. I got a falafel sandwich which ended up being about $6. Unheard of for a meal in Manhattan that gets you stuffed… as long as you stuff your sandwich to brim. Love the unlimited side dish option. The side dishes are all healthy cold options. Onion + tomato, tabbouleh, chickpea salad, coleslaw, etc.
Granted this location doesn't have places to sit- only a small 2 person standing counter facing the street. But when you want a cheap, quick, healthy bite because you don't want to cook, Maoz is a great option.
Went here this past weekend for a quick dinner before seeing Phish at Madison Square Garden. Right when I walked in, I could tell Maoz was going to be a healthy and hearty dinner! I got the chicken shawarma hummus bowl, which is essentially some chicken shawarma served with a side of hummus. It is decent priced, as you get full access to the salad bar (only 1 time though) and can stock up on an array of ingredients on the side. I also got a fresh Arnold Palmer to drink (yum! I think they make these in-house?). The salad bar is full of so much variety– like broccoli, pickled carrots, pickled beets, chickpeas, etc. There's also a bunch of different sauces to toss on top (Tahini, garlic sauce, etc.).
Service was quick and the people working there were friendly. My meal and drink cost roughly $15… Not too bad for fresh food in NYC. A few tables were in the restaurant with stools to sit on.
- Choose between a salad or a sandwich. (Add ons: premium topping, side, drink) The sweet potato fries are pretty delicious. Once you choose what you want, you get to fill your pita bread or salad with whatever toppings you want, like a salad bar. And it doesn't matter how much you throw in there either. Its all vegetarian and absolutely delicious. Definitely get at least two white garlic sauce to go, cuz one is just not enough. No seating inside, they do have a bench outside and a small counter inside if you want to enjoy your food there. Multiple locations throughout the city and a much healthier choice than other fast food places.
- The do-it-yourself salad bar is what makes Maoz worth it. It includes everything from roasted cauliflower and broccoli to chickpeas. I got a falafel bowl with kale and then loaded up on toppings. My favorites are the beets and coleslaw. The falafel itself is fine, not Taim but tasty enough. Unfortunately, they don't allow refills on toppings, but my lunch meal still left me full for the rest of the day.
