Mamouns Falafel coming to Hoboken

Mamouns to add to Falafel choices in Hoboken NJ

When it rains, it pours in Hoboken – and the resulting flood isn’t always water or sewage! It could be many of the same style eateries too!

Just like the Frozen Yogurt Bermuda Triangle on Washington Street – we now have what will be the THIRD Mediterranean restaurant coming to the Mile Square in a short time.

The Hummus Bar opened first, followed by Maoz Vegetarian – and now the famous Mamoun’s Falafel – is said to be opening up in Hoboken soon.

Mamoun’s was my very first taste of Mediterranean food in NYC back when I was in High School – and it’ll probably do quite well here in town.

Does Hoboken have room for a third falafel store within three blocks on Washington Street?

Hat tip to Lauren for the scoop! She said they’re opening up on Washington Street between 5th and 6th.

Will it be at Dino’s Sandwich Shop, the old HSBC Bank? Or maybe one of these three places is doomed? Off the Wall Chinese, Fresh Tortilla Grill or Hoboken Cottage? Or perhaps on the east side of the street? Or even somewhere else?

Description: Mediterranean Restaurant serving chicken, Falafel, Pita Sandwiches
Address: 502 Washington St., Hoboken, NJ 07030
Phone: TBD

The best falafel in NJ.

After seeing all the raves about Mamouns I gave it a try. I left thinking they must’ve hired a blogging team to pump up their business. The falafel was deep fried and packed full of oil. The outside of the balls were too hard and crunchy. It also didn’t taste very good. I haven’t gone back since. I can do without their choice of loud Middle Eastern music while I’m eating, too.

Maoz is my choice for Hoboken falafel, but since they’re strictly vegetarian I might go back to Mamouns and try some of their meat dishes after reading some of the raves here.

I know Mamoun’s from my single days … a friend who had spent some time in Israel brought me there because he said that it had the best darned shawarma in Manhattan. Well, Manhattan is a big place, and perhaps there is better somewhere else in that big grid, but I do agree that it was quite good. I never really “got” shawarma until that place — and after that I couldn’t get it often enough.

I love Ali Baba, but I am really looking forward to trying this new place.

I love this place! And you can’t go wrong with the prices! $2.50 for a good sized falafel sandwich, and it’s delicious.
