We can’t really take credit for Maoz. It’s an Israeli-style felafel restaurant that serves Belgian-style fries and began in the Netherlands, we think. Nonetheless, it’s made it’s way to Philly and that’s our gain. The sandwiches are huge, and include plenty of (all vegetarian) toppings and sauces for you to choose from, salad bar style. It’s a simple felafel sandwich, with eggplant and hummus if you want, and it’s delicious. Depending on whether you want fries and a drink, you can have a pretty awesome meal for $4-7. Seating is limited in the South Street location, but there are a few tables, and this is easily a food you could enjoy in a park or on your way to our next tour (hint hint).

We’re not quite sure what to make of this place. Their wraps are incredible, and rather unique. The Buffalo Chicken wrap has a green chili sauce, their honey mustard chicken wrap has brie, and they have a sweet potato ginger soup that’s really nice. We’re just not sure where the European comes in. It seems the influences are American, Mediterranean, and Middle Eastern. Probably the “Belgian-style” fries are the case for the title, and they have over 20 dipping sauces to pick from. It’s the perfect place for lunch or a snack. Everything on the menu is under seven dollars, making it one of our favorite places.

A great place for Chinese food, specializing in vegetarian dishes. Charles is an excellent chef and a great personality. This place is both terrific and cheap. See their Yelp page here
