Another Food-related Post

This place hardly needs a plug-- it's already been featured on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives-- and yet... I can't help it, I love it.

According to the Coptic friend-of-a-friend, the word falafel comes from the Coptic for fava bean. Unlike the falafel you find most places, those dry pucks made from chick peas, the falafel here are soft and green inside. And delicious. Cheap. Made from fava beans? I suspect so. If you find yourself hungry in San Jose, try it.

(Note the apostrophe there in the name: it's
Falafel's drive-in.)
