Are you thinking about the quirky name? Let me tell you a bit of history. Falafel is similar to Indian' vada' but made from chickpeas and a secret masala, wrapped in a Saj flatbread and layered with hummus, vegetables, and tahini sauce. Habibi means "my love" in Arabic and "buddy" in the Levant region.
With Habibi Falafel, Bangalore will spark its love of Middle Eastern street food with its 100% authentic, fresh, affordable, quick, healthy falafel rolls and sandwiches.
Habibi Falafel offers an exotic menu of Lebanese, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Israeli and Arabic cuisine. I tried their Falafel Burger consisting of falafel patty and Eggplant Mutabbal roasted with garlic, lemon, and tahini along with fries. I must admit the meal was a warm bowl of goodness.
