Over the years Falafil Al Comodor has become something of a Sharjah landmark. That’s in addition to being synonymous with the most amazing falafels and falafel sandwiches on the planet. Located opposite Majaz Park on Jamal Abdul Nasir Street, the restaurant is built on two floors. The first floor is dominated by a prep counter at the far end, a condiments island in the middle (where a selection of complimentary pickles, herbs and relishes are laid out), and wall counters along the sides where one can stand and eat. Table and chairs are upstairs. And of course, a cash counter as you enter.
Everything at this little eatery is excellent. I usually order their standard falafel wrap with a little extra of their tangy tahini sauce – it’s out of this world. I eat this with their delicious pickled chillies (from the comp island). The other wrap I love is falafel with fried eggplant – OMG! Their hummus and foul are both fantastic too and should be included in what you eat there or order.
The staff are friendly but in a yalla, yalla kind of way – turnaround at Falafil Al Comodor is staggering – this is a very popular place, and rightly so. Believe the Zomato rating – it really is that good, and well worth a detour.
