Molly Yeh’s Falafel Recipe Brings Brightness to January

Taim means flavor but more specifically, YUMMMM. We use it when we take a bite and can only summon one word to express how utterly delicious that bite is. TAIM!

So it makes perfect sense that the best falafel in NYC is served at a place with a name that encapsulates how perfectly balanced, sizzling and savory their vegetarian falafel is: Taim.

Scroll down or click here to get the scoop about the exciting year-long guest chefs series at Taim, NYC. You might actually calendar a visit to Taim at least once a month to get wow’ed by each chef’s creation. Let me know and I’ll come with.

This month Molly Yeh‘s falafel is blowing away falafel regulars with her minty cuke salad, bright citrusy yogurt dressing and tangy pickled onions. This stuffed pita was like a ray of sunshine when I gobbled it at lunch today.

Bar Bolonat and Balaboosta are not kosher but have plenty of vegetarian choices if you are Kosher Like Me.
