I’d heard of this mini-trend (a trendlet?) of food truck chefs opening bricks-and-morter restaurants. I was especially pleased that Foxy Falafel decided to do this just down the road on Raymond Avenue in St. Anthony Park. I love falafel, but for whatever reason, just never seem to eat them so this gives me a good excuse to get my falafel on once again.
Their new location is on the west side of Raymond between University and Transfer. You can’t miss it because they use great font in their signage. (I mean look at that sign…how could you not go in?) I thought it would be more like a take-out joint, but there is table seating. I went there at lunch and was happy to see a good, busy crowd, which gave the place a lively, but not overwhelming, vibe.
I got the the signature Foxy Falafel with spicy harissa dressing. It was great. I’ve gotten some greasy falafel before, but this was perfect. There was some other Levantine dishes being offered as well such as your shawarma, tabouli, gyro, etc. I didn’t want to come across as too much of a stalker, but from looking at everyone else’s dishes they all looked really good….especially the marinated beets which I will get next time!
I was also pleased they have a beer and wine license, and have a happy hour. Raymond and University is a great corner of the city with and interesting mix of uses, and it could use a place like Foxy Falafel. I will be going back there.
Let me also give a shout to Shag Studio just a couple storefronts down. They had a small but good selection of men’s used clothing and I scored a good shirt there.
I was so hungry I forgot to take a photo of the beautiful falafel!
