When we think of falafel, our mind conjures up a pita bread sandwich stuffed with the iconic ground chickpea-and-fava-bean balls, tarator (tahini sauce with parsley), pickled horseradish, tomato and radishes. Full stop. Nothing more. Well, the people at Amsterdam Falafelshop like to do things a little bit differently, and we’re talking a full-on garnish bar where you can stuff your sandwich silly with over 21 sauces and toppings. You’ve got red cabbage, sauerkraut, fried cauliflower, fried eggplant, hummus, baba ghannouj, beets, Greek salad, tzatziki sauce—wait, wait, I’m not through—Dutch mayo, homemade peanut ‘saus,’ malt vinegar, Old Bay Seasoning, ketchup, and more. Your sandwich ends up looking like a falafel cornucopia.
