The King of Falafel is a fried chick pea lovers paradise. When working around the corner I was tipped off about this place by a colleague at lunch time. It didn’t disappoint. Fine deep fried chick peas mixed with a tasty garlic and chilli sauce, all wrapped up by our proficient moustached Arab friend behind the counter. I love a good falafel and I’m pleased to say I have tasted many over the years, from the markets of Istanbul to the streets of Camden Town. And this little gem tucked away amongst the hustle and bustle of Leather Lane market is up there with the best of the them. Avoid the lunch time rush at The King of Falafel and get there just before 1pm, or else you’ll find yourself waiting behind 15 other hungry customers keen to devour one of these tasty wraps. If you do have to wait, it’ll be worth every minute. / Firas Waez
