Fafa's (Helsinki, Finland)
Kauppakeskus, Citycenter, Citykäytävä, 00100 Helsinki, Finland
Fafa’s is a Finnish chain of high-quality falafel restaurants with more than 10 locations in Finland, mostly in and around Helsinki. It serves a broad variety of vegan, vegetarian, and meat pitas as well as mezes and salads, most built around falafel, humus, and kebabs. Prices are pretty steep, as is usual in Finland.
I get the most basic Falafel & Humus (€8.90), which comes with 4 or 5 well-prepared falafel balls, humus, matbuha, tomato, pickles, lettuce, cucumber, cabbage, tahini and parsley, all on a big gluten-free pita. I top it with spicy red sauce, which makes it all even better. It tastes fresh and pretty authentic.
Good falafel, big sandwich.
