Falafel Corner

2791 East Bidwell Street, Suite 900, Folsom, 916-292-8737,

In the mood for some super Mediterranean food? You’re in luck! There’s a place in Folsom serving up memorable meals made using wholesome ingredients without any added colors, additives, or anything else that shouldn’t be in your food. Falafel Corner has a menu full of their namesake falafels (of course!), plus gyros, wraps, and more. I went with the Chicken Wrap: grilled marinated chicken in a secret combo of spices, with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and tzatziki all snuggled inside a warm pita. I love the texture of a warm pita filled with anything. It also came with a side of fries, which always makes me happy. My husband had the Philly Wrap: gyro (lamb) with onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, and a side of crinkle-cut fries. They also serve burgers, bowls, sandwiches, salads, and pizza. Feel like getting fancy with your fries? Try the shawarma or Greek fries! Whatever you order, do yourself a favor and grab a side of hummus, pita (you can never have too much pita), and handmade Falafel. Dine in, grab it to go, or have them cater your next event. Just don’t forget the baklava for dessert!
