Weekend Trip: Mediterranean Sunrise Falafel
After disembarking from the plane and finishing up all of the airport stuff, it was soon time for lunch. We chose a Greek restaurant called Mediterranean Sunrise in Franklin Square, NY. I ordered a Falafel sandwich, and it then turned out everyone else I was with also ordered the same. Mediterranean Sunrise was basically a fast food restaurant, but they seemed to have issues getting the food out in a timely manner. It took about twenty minutes for the sandwiches to be served (which don't require all that much preparation), and in the meantime, some of the other customers in the restaurant were getting angry about the wait.
The amount of time that it took for the food to come out was bad, but the food itself was good. The sandwich consisted of two falafels, each crispy on the outside, but moist on the inside, along with lettuce, onions, and tzatziki in a pita. It was a tasty sandwich...
