This second location of I Dream of Falafel offers the exact same menu in a storefront with three times the space. Mediterranean favorites get the quick-serve treatment at these vegan-friendly Loop spots, which cater to a lunch-time crowd. The counter-service set-up allows for total customization: Start with a Lebanese roll, golden rice, salad or a bed of hummus, then add beef or chicken shawarma, kefta kabob (grilled lamb) or, of course, the namesake falafel. Top it off with the sauce of your choice from a list that includes tahini, raita (spiced yogurt sauce) and spicy tomato. Sides such as dolmas, fattoush and lentil soup are available too, and in the morning there's a small Med-inspired breakfast menu with options like toasted hummus, shawarma omelets and "falafelettes," chopped falafels mixed up with scrambled eggs. Wash it all down with beverages like fresh-squeezed OJ and Arabian tea.
