Roadside Gourmet: Moses Falafel

Moses Falafel

Austin, Texas

What to Order: Falafel with Fixings, Baklava

Former Israeli Air Force technician Shmuel Haviv keeps the menu at Moses Falafel simple: He serves soft and chewy pita filled with crispy falafel, drizzled with hot sauce and topped with hummus, cucumber salad and pickles. Haviv parks his falafel trailer on the Jewish Community Center’s campus in the afternoons, providing a lunch option for students that’s kosher, vegan, and even — sans pita — gluten-free. For that good old American post-sandwich sugar craving, Haviv also keeps a tray of flakey, gooey baklava at the ready.
