I tried the new @falafilldetroit and I really liked it! I got the platter which is one protein with 5 sides. The chicken was awesome! They gave me one falafel to try and it was fantastic!👍
I can’t wait to go back and try the garlic fries and their wraps.

Foodies and Community FalaFILLed with New Taste of Detroit

DETROIT, Mich. - June 2, 2015 - Falafill - Midtown’s community outreach efforts exceed expectations in lieu of marketing strategies and community connections. 

Metro Detroit’s most popular foodies joined the owners and staff of Falafill for the company’s first major in-house event - “Falafill Up The Foodies” hosted in coordination with Falafill and Eventistry. The event featured all of the restaurant’s delicious offerings on the menu. Foodies selected options from the fresh selections ranging from the statement falafel to the company’s biggest seller - the marinated yogurt chicken complimented with tomatoes and a variety of spices. Sounds delicious, right? The foodies thought it tasted just as heavenly as it looked and smelled. The night brought in representatives from Food Porn Detroit, This Is A Good Sign, the Detroit Foodie and more local social media influences.

“I’m really enjoying this food,” Dave Moss, a local and popular Foodie to the Twitter and Instagram community commented on his meal. “It has a nice crunch and texture,” referring to the minted cabbage salad. “I like the different options and sizes. Everything is fresh.” He stated. As to Falafill’s hip and colorful eatery, “it’s comfortable here,” he continued, “and very cheery.” The restaurant is full of vivid images from food images to a bustling Beirut street scene mural complementing an entire wall. Anyone’s senses are sparked by the environment upon entering and smelling the scrumptious foods to seeing the vibrant decor and tasting the divine and refreshing foods. Yes, refreshing. Falafill’s healthy options appeased the foodies with the nutritious and filling ingredients. 

“It’s always exciting seeing a company flourish by its own influences,” says Amera Fattah, owner of Eventistry. “The owners and staff of Falafill are friendly and personable and truly care not only for the success of the business but local businesses and Detroit - that’s why the growth of this business will exceed everyone’s expectations.” With ongoing construction on Woodward Avenue, businesses are impacted with walk-ins and general sales. The construction hasn’t slowed down Falafill. The staff is taking the marketing efforts outside of the restaurant by flyering to local businesses their local employee discounts and contacting businesses with their new exclusive catering incentives. Social media marketing is increasing their consumer base. With over 1,600 likes just on Facebook, the company’s likes are representative of more than a Facebook button but inclusive of Falafill’s lively environment, melt-in-your-mouth menu, charming staff, and successful company philosophy.

The food is made fresh from scratch daily. Co-owner Kassem Fardoun takes pride is the company mantra - “Fast, Fresh, Falafill.” The owners purchase ingredients locally and serve up only the best to their customers. Their newest marketing efforts are dedicated to catering to the local community. Fala-fill Up The Foodies was a positive kick-off to the restaurant’s popularity and presence. In addition to participating in local events such as Bravo! Bravo! and upcoming community events, this is only the beginning of Falafill’s Detroit Influence.

May @ Falafill: Chris Pandel

April showers bring May flowers, and a delicious wrap. This month Falafill is excited to announce that Chris Pandel, chef of both The Bristol and Balena, is our featured guest chef. This wrap is blooming with awesome seasonal ingredients. Chris brings a little taste of Italy to each bite using our white bean and Swiss chard falafel with tonnato sauce, Calabrian chili relish, and pickled spring onions. Brilliante!

Every month a new chef highlights a sandwich at Falafill donating $1 for every guest sandwich sold. This month we are donating the proceeds to the Spence Farm Foundation. The Spence Farm Foundation is set out to educate, promote, and encourage the practice of small sustainable farming across America. They hold programs for children in schools, teachers, and organizations across Illinois promoting he wealth and importance of local farming and healthy foods. No wonder Chris is so involved!

Just two and a half years after Chris opened The Bristol, success has led to the opening of his second restaurant, Balena. Tucked away on Halsted Street in Lincoln Park, it showcases Chris Pandel’s classic Italian excellence with a few twists.

Come check out Chris Pandel’s featured wrap this month for $6.50 with $1 going towards the Spence Farm Foundation. Only at Falafill.

Lottie + Doof creates Falafill Wrap to Support Open Books!

Do you love reading about food as much as you enjoy eating it? We feel the same way! That’s why we were thrilled to learn that when Tim Mazurek, of the popular cooking blog Lottie + Doof, was asked to design a seasonal wrap for Falafill’s Chefs for Charity program, he chose to have the proceeds from his wrap support Open Books! In addition to classic falafel, the wrap includes urfa pepper and eggplant spread, arugula, feta, pickled pears(!!!) and toasted walnuts. It will be available throughout November at all three Falafill locations. Yum! 

Falafill will be @ Dose Market Sunday May 13th

This Sunday, for Mother’s Day only, we’ll have a table at Dose Market and bring back some old favorites as well as some newbies that have never been seen on our menu before.

If Dose Market is new to you, wrap your head around this. It’s a monthly pop-up flea market of sorts, featuring local vendors that specialize in either food or fashion. Sounds pretty cool, right? We’ve dropped in on the market a few times since it debuted last year, and not only are we always blown away by the incredible food and pop-up concepts people present, but the space itself. The market is housed in the gorgeous River East Arts Center, not too far from Navy Pier and the cool gourmet market Fox & Obel.

We’ve had sandwiches from the impossible-to-get-into Great Lake; sliced “meat cones” from Jared Van Camp of Old Town Social; a pop-up pickle shop, kitchen, and bar from Mark Steuer of The Bedford; and even cocktails from Grant Achatz and the guys at The Aviary. Mouth watering stuff we’re talking about, handed to you and made fresh from Chicago chefs and artisans.

So we decided to have some fun with our menu for Sunday and offer some things you can’t really get in the store—and what better place to start than our guest chef wraps. For months and months people have been asking us to bring back some of their favorite wraps, and we’re finally listening.

That wrap that Stephanie Izard had on the menu you all loved? It’s back. And Mark Steuer’s wrap with the English pea and lemon falafel? Yup, it’s making a revival run, too. We loved his use of peas and lemon to make a light and delicious falafel in place of the classic chickpea. And the most exciting part? Maher decided to jump back in the ring and come up with his own wrap, which means Falafill is running its own special for the first time in over a year. But again, this is for Mother’s Day only, and only at Dose Market.

Here’s the full working menu, which includes items you can take home for your pantry, to help you get a little taste of what to expect:

Chef Wraps

Stephanie’s Wrap (Girl & the Goat)
Classic falafel, hummus, shaved Brussels sprouts salad, shallot aioli and yuzu harissa.

Mark’s Wrap (The Bedford)
English pea and lemon falafel, hummus, spicy sambal yogurt and zucchini pickles.

Maher’s Wrap (Falafill)
Classic falafel, spicy potatoes with crushed coriander, muhammra spread (roasted red pepper/walnut), pickled baby eggplant, walnuts.


- Labneh ( soft yogurt cheese), topped with a layer of zaatar and XV olive oil with pita chips
- Muhammara with pita chips
- Hummus topped with roasted pine nuts and herbs with pita chips
- Fatouche salad with pita chips


- Za’atar mix
- Ammer el dine (apricot sheets)
- Goat labneh balls in olive oil

- Orange blossom water

Tickets to Dose Market are available in advance, or for sale at the door. A word to the wise? Get there early. Fewer people, far more fun to be had between the fashion and food. See you guys Sunday!
