Maoz Vegetarian taped up

Why would Maoz Vegetarian be closed in Hoboken?

This little Hoboken business nugget makes no sense.

Maoz Vegetarian at 315 Washington Street is all papered up. Closed. I peeked in and asked the people inside what was going on, and they said “renovations.”

Perhaps they’re telling the truth, but I smell a different story here. Could “renovations” be small biz code for “financial trouble?”

Maoz Vegetarian set to delight Hoboken NJ residents

2/10/2011 Update:

Good news, healthy food lovers! Another choice for delicious vegetarian food just opened in Hoboken, NJ!

Maoz Vegetarian (315 Washington St.) is now ready to serve you fresh & tasty falafel, salads, and even Belgian Fries and Sweet Potato Fries too. Some quick observations before the formal review in a week or two:

  • Clean facility, and all ingredients are prepared fresh the day of – not days in advance.
  • Self-serve condiment section. Cole Slaw, Salsa, vegetables and many other toppings you can eat as much as you want.
  • No delivery yet – that’s coming soon in a few weeks once they settle in.
  • See menu here.

Maoz Vegetarian gets a Hoboken face!

1/7/2011 Update:

Nine months after Hoboken411 announced that Maoz Vegetarian was coming to the Mile Square – they finally get some color in their storefront. They still look like they have a bit more work inside, though.

Maoz Vegetarian coming to 315 Washington St.

4/7/2010:

Many Hoboken residents work in Manhattan, and enjoy the vegetarian delights of Maoz Vegetarian. Falafel, salads, Beglian fries and more! Tasty and healthy!

Well good news! According to the Maoz Vegetarian website – they have pegged 315 Washington Street to be one of their next locations – and second in New Jersey!

“Maoz Vegetarian is an international, quick service vegetarian restaurant chain, which brought to the world the delicious Maoz sandwich: FALAFEL.

“Our menu is strictly vegetarian and is based on simplicity, freshness and care. Our famous Maoz sandwich is home baked pita bread filled with crispy, handmade Falafel balls which are made from chickpeas, a vitamin rich legume, packed with plenty of proteins, minerals and vitamin B. The chickpeas are blended daily with fresh spices and vegetables and then fried in zero trans-fat Canola oil. All of our salads and sauces are freshly prepared every day using handpicked ingredients to assure superior quality and freshness.”

I wonder how the Cinnamon Snail feels about this? Haha!

i love these people who try to rationalize why meat is bad for you. meanwhile these vegan folks look emaciated, their skin almost looks a funny color to me, and i just don’t see how they can be benefiting by depriving themselves of the protein that meat provides (not to even mention the taste which is a whole other conversation – obviously these folks ain’t italian and grew up with food as a centerpiece of life) …everything in moderation!…

Em, I agree with some of what you state here. Produce can wind up being bad for you as well if insufficiently washed for example. I don’t find it fair that one food is discriminated against.

where are you seeing all these vegans? i’ve been vegan 13 years… you would think i would know a couple. but they are still very few around. anyway, i don’t know why you are bothered by vegans. so what, i’m vegan. you eat meat. get over it!

What a naive, uninformed statement. I’ve been a vegetarian (not a vegan, though I know several) nearly my entire adult life and I can assure you I’m anything but emaciated–I can probably stand to lose about 15-20 pounds to tell you the truth. As for protein, you can get it through any number of other sources–you have a computer, do a little research. And no, I don’t just mean beans and tofu, which is another misconception some people have about vegetarians. As for why meat is bad for you, it probably wouldn’t be if you killed it yourself and ate… Read more »

UGH. I have to find that truck on Twitter. Or somewhere. I want a doughnut. The guy who makes the doughnuts is a damn genius.

Are there currently any falafel places in Hoboken? I’m always craving it but don’t know where to get it around here.

You can get falafels at Ali Baba and Pita Grill, and both do an excellent job (Ali Baba is better and the people there are really nice). But this place sounds really promising.

i agree with you about the other places being good however i tried 2 different maoz locations. one was on 8th st in the village the other on 7th ave the falafel was served cold and rubbery in one and just ok in the other but both had dirty unkept fixings bars which was a big turn off for me. maybe it would help if the free stuff was behind the counter and they put whatever u wanted in the pita for you[quote comment=”190188″]You can get falafels at Ali Baba and Pita Grill, and both do an excellent job (Ali… Read more »

That area is already crowded with food eateries. why not bring it uptown, which has much less choices, they would do well uptown.
