Green, fast food shop in the middle of Roppongi
One street over from the busy Roppongi crossing where the flow of people never stops, you would see this big green sign among night clubs and bars. There aren’t too many people around during the day, except for those who are going into this popular vegan falafel stand, Falafel Brothers.
There is only a small counter table with 3 chairs inside. Seeing people grabbing their quick bite on the bench outside, it looks like a regular fast food place, but the food is different – it’s vegan, full of vegetables and healthy!
Highly-satisfying Falafel meal at a good price
Menu at Falafel Brothers is quite simple – basically you enjoy their falafel in either pita bread sandwich or salad. You choose the base leaf vegetable, toppings and sauce, then they’ll whip up a sandwich or salad bowl right there for you. There are various toppings to choose from, so you feel like you’re eating something different every time.
Because it’s a meal fixed quickly right there, you can’t expect to have freshly-fried hot falafels, but for the amount of vegetables you get and the price (1,000 yen for a sandwich and 1100 yen for a big salad), I’d say it’s a great value for the money! Their falafel doesn’t have a “punchy” taste like extra garlic or spices so anyone would like it even those who are completely new to falafels or Middle Eastern food.
At Falafel Brothers, you must not forget to try their vegan sweets! At the Roppongi branch, they have cookies and scones, and at the Ebisu branch, they have more variety like cakes. They’re adding new dessert menu all the time so make sure to check it out! (Photograph below is apple crumble I had at the Shibuya branch which is currently closed.)
Enjoy with takeout and delivery
Currently (as of May 2020), the Shibuya branch located inside Shibuya PARCO is temporarily closed, but the Roppongi branch and Ebisu branch are open for eat-in as well as takeout and delivery by Ubereats. They have some limited special offerings like a family pack, which you can check on their Instagram account!
