Hello Falafel, the new fast-casual Middle Eastern inspired restaurant at 2301 S. Howell Ave., is getting very (very) close to opening. With inspections under their belts this week, the new spot from Ross Bachhuber and Melissa Buchholz, the owners of Odd Duck, could open as early as next week.
The menu – which will be executed by Chef de Cuisine Theresa Schuenke – includes a host of mouthwatering sandwiches, salads, rice dishes and sides with inspired flavor combinations that showcase the oft-overlooked brilliance of vegetable-based fare.
We were also fortunate to get a sneek k at the e, along with some of the drool-worthy edibles it will serve. And from what we can tell, this is a new joint you won’t want to wait to visit.
The interior of the restaurant is cozy, and will feature seating for about 20 at tables, as well as a windowside bar to the northeast. Decor is welcoming and bright, decked out with little des like patterned wallpaper, brightly colored mismatched chairs, patterned throw pillows and a brilliant aqua-hued wall sporting whimsical letters that spell out “H-E-L-L-O.”
The first thing you’ll note upon entering the restaurant is the ordering counter, complete with a well-equipped juice bar where customers can get made to order fresh juice blends, which come in 12 ounce portions for $6.
Options include “Crimson” with strawberries, blackberries, beets, pomegranate, ginger and rosewater; “Goldie” with gfruit, apple, orange, radishes, coriander and mint; “Jade” with cuber, collard greens, cauliflower, celery, parsley, jalapeno and green apple; and “Marld” with carrots, parsnips, radishes, fennel, pineapple, lime, turmeric and ginger.
Other cold beverages will include rosemary rosewater lemonade, dill-basil-mint limeade or Rishi summer lemon iced tea ($2.50 each). Hot beverages will include black, green or herbal tea ($2), Anodyne coffee ($2) and French pressed coffee with cardamom syrup and fresh mint ($7)
The sandwich side of the menu features falafel sandwiches constructed with freshly made laffa bread – a traditional Jewish flatbread that’s pliable, slightly chewier than na’an and less e to sogginess when exposed to condiments and sauces. All sandwiches ($8) can also be made into gluten free platters when served over saffron carrot rice with nuts for no extra charge.
The “Clic” includes house hummus and mixed pickles along with lemon tahini and red cabbage.
Meanwhile, the fresh vint “Beet” includes salt roasted beet spread with fennel, cuber salad, sumac onion, green tahini (blended with spinach) and goat cheese.
The “Red” is briny, bright and full of umami thanks to roasted red pepper spread, oil-cured olives, feta cheese, radishes, mixed pickles and tahini.
The “Sabih” is simultaneously bright, earthy and rich with charred eggplant spread, hard-cooked egg, lemon tahini, zhoug and cuber salad.
Falafel will also be available by the piece, with a choice of sauces including lemon tahini, green tahini, zhoug and harissa.
Salads include an Israeli salad with cuber, tomato, pickled mango, sumac onion, baby greens, herbs and lemon ($4/$8); a fattoush salad with butter lettuce, pickled oyster mushrooms, radishes, torn pita bread, feta and herb vinaigrette ($4/$8); quinoa tabouleh salad with apples, kale, sumac onion, herbs, toasted walnuts and preserved lemon vinaigrette ($4/$8); and Moroccan carrot salad with roasted carrots, couscous, dates, golden raisins, herbs, pistachios and charred eggplant ($6).
And sides offer up lentil soup with yogurt, lemon and parsley served with laffa bread ($3/$5); eggplant fries with turmeric salt, honey, mint and sesame ($6); charred halloumi with fresh herbs and tomato chutney ($6) and pita served with a choice of dips including red pepper, hummus, charred eggplant or beet ($4).
