nice place but falafel in general is over-rated. it's just deep fried bread crumbs. want that in a sandwich? sure, here's a sandwich filled with deep fried bread crumbs. veggies more your thing? sure, here's a salad with deep fried bread crumbs.

Erica Strait's falafel empire has expanded from a farmers market stall in 2010 to a food truck and now to a restaurant. Foxy Falafel is her new Middle Eastern restaurant in St. Paul. As the name implies, falafels are the centerpiece. The menu is very friendly to vegetarians, vegans, and the gluten/dairy intolerant, but meat-eaters will find something to love here too. The falafel come in traditional, curry (with Indian spices, and the favorite of every staff member we asked), or beet (which seemed to come through more in color than in flavor). You can get them in sandwich, salad, or platter, and you can choose from several delectable sauces (we liked the green tahini). As for meats, you can't go wrong with the turkey shawarma, chicken gyro, or the lamb burger. PHOTOS BY ALMA GUZMAN
