Amsterdam Falafel Shop

I think I can honestly say after eating a two different Dutch falafel shops and countless Middle Eastern ones, I can honestly say having a condiments bar makes all the difference. Cheap food, good food, a good people behind the counter. What more can I ask for?

The menu is simple, consisting of falafel, french fries, and brownies. They do each of these really well, making for a tasty meal or snack. There is a topping bar for the falafel sandwiches, with a wide range of salads, hummus, veggies, and other choices. Amsterdam Falafel does not provide any silverware (so keep the amount of toppings manageable), and you can't go back to the toppings bar for seconds. The seating area is quite small, with a few more tables outside. I don't expect much in the way of service at a place like this, but the staff is always friendly and of help when you need it.

Perfect for a quick neighborhood bite or to bolster your stomach after an evening on the town - Amsterdam Falafel serves up falafel (what else? well actually, very little else) and fries in a small second story hole in the wall on 18th street. You can top your falafel with a mind-boggling array of options at the cannot-be-beat falafel condiment bar. The service is utilitarian (as suits an Adams Morgan local, the staff appear to have been recruited from a less-than-successful local band, or perhaps had their applications at Tryst down the street rejected) and you will occasionally scramble for a seat, but you will have to walk much further to get food this good for less than $6 in DC.
