Kosher and Vegan Falafel and Other Exquisite Middle Eastern Food Options


This falafel truck is well known for having the best kosher and vegan falafel in Los Angeles. But they are also known for some of their other yummy kosher food items. They recently added French fries to go along with a delicious falafel in pita sandwich or perhaps you’re more of a falafel salad type.

Falafel on Wheels has another sandwich they’re well known for called ”Sabich,” which is a pita filled up with fresh fried eggplant and eggs, as well as some tomatoes, cucumber, cabbage, pickles, tahini, parsley, and a dash of salt. And it is mm mmm good! As a special, many customers enjoy adding some fried eggplant in their falafel sandwich as well (which many absolutely love that way). However, if you’re looking for something delicious and vegan, you will have to forgo the sabich sandwich. The regular falafel sandwich and salad are vegan.


Another amazing option on the menu is called Potato Cuties. Potato Cuties are unlike anything you’ve ever tried. Once you try them, you will feel so satisfied and blissful, I guarantee it. The taste is probably what you’d imagine the food tastes like up in Heaven. Potato Cuties are fried potato puff triangles that start out crispy and they basically bite you back with the incredible taste of the soft potato center. They are the newest menu item at the Falafel on Wheels food truck. A must-try for sure. The only thing you need to tell them is regular, spicy, or smothered if you like extra tahini sauce.
