With an array of ah-maz-ing toppings and condiments at Amsterdam Falafelshop.
You go in. You order your falafel (I like the small wheat pita pocket – only $5.50 but filling). You crush the balls (yup, you’re expressly instructed to do so). Then you top up with fillings. Mine has tahini, hummus, dill yogurt sauce, pickled beets, Thai hot sauce and jalapeño cilantro. Yum.

Have you tried the new concept Chutney’s at the Garage in Harvard Square yet? It’s bagging the former Flat Patties space and serves up Indian food in a wrap or sandwich. You can get your choice of meal in a paratha wrap, nanini or with a plate of rice with a choice of salad toppings and unique sauces. Check out the options online.
I recently tried the chicken chilli rice plate topped with lettuce, tomato, onions and tamarind chutney and was pleasantly surprised.
I also liked the lamb seekh kabob paratha wrap with mint chutney – yum!
The masala chai was just right and you can get a soda with a side of two samosas or momos for only $1.50.
It’s a cool concept and it’s quick, super cheap and filling.

I love the Globe’s fun food slide shows. This week, it’s quirky fast food items.
I thought immediately of poutine and the KFC chicken sandwich but I think the bacon cheeseburger doughnut from Krispy Kreme in their list takes the bakery. Very weird.
