Whilst these top 5 lists are not in any particular order, these falafel restaurants are some firm favourites of Foozie and we think them deserving of a shout out! If you are looking for inspiration for your next falafel fix then have a scroll…
Address: 6 Cotham Hill, Bristol BS6
You may have seen this small unassuming Falafel King takeaway in Bristol’s city centre, come rain or shine. It is part of the scenery and long may it continue, because it has been providing Bristolians with falafel balls of joy for quite some time. They also have a sit down restaurant on Cotham Hill – an intimate cafe with a much fuller menu to choose from. The real clincher about the Cotham Hill establishment is the private downstairs function area; it is LIT – with so many trinkets and elaborate furnishings it is a secret hidden paradise which is well worth a look.
Eat a Pitta
Address: Various Locations
Everyone knows about Eat a Pitta, don’t they? With venues in Broadmead, St. Nicks and Gloucester Road – if you haven’t already been acquainted – then we suggest you give them a try. These crispy and delicious falafel are made fresh daily and are served piled high with colourful salads and houmous. When we say piled high , we are talking 6 of these big bad balls to much on for lunch or dinner. Have yours in a salad box or in a pitta and let the addiction commence.
Address: Stokes Croft, Bristol BS2
A Biblos speciality has to be their homemade falafel. The Stokes Croft site of Biblos has been serving locals tasty takeaway food both day and night right in Bristol’s cultural quarter for an impressive amount of time but amongst their reputation for solid, delicious meat wraps (we already know this), we felt their falafel needed a shoutout. Served with tantalising homemade houmous, it’s banging.
Address: 13 Small Street, Bristol BS1
