Taim

I had lunch at Taim today.


Serious Eats reports this place as having the best falafel in New York.

Mabel and I got falafel platters here about a year ago. I remember it being very good, but not ridiculously good. Then we forgot about the place until it came up in conversation over dinner with Crystal's friends last night.

So I stopped by this morning and got a falafel sandwich.


It was really good. I like the sandwich way better than the platter. I got it with whole wheat pita and green falafel. The bread is super fresh, the falafel is super green, and everything's extremely satisfying and wholesome-feeling. It doesn't supplant my good memories of L'As du Fallafel, but it definitely is my favorite falafel on this side of the Atlantic.

While I was eating, someone put a stuffed Top Cat on the bicycle next to mine.


I'm not sure what to make of it.
