Falafel Corner // For just a short time now, Falafel Corner has been serving Folsom residents mouthwatering, made-from-scratch Mediterranean dishes with a side of friendly service. Upon entering, you’re instantly hit with the enticing aromas of spices and fresh local veggies. Thanks to the warm atmosphere and amiable employees, I instantly felt at ease and ready to dive into their intriguing menu. The eatery is unique in that they cater to every customer’s needs—from offering high-quality zabiha ingredients (including premium, corn-fed Harris Ranch beef) to classic and familiar dishes (burgers, curly fries, and quesadillas), as well as authentic Mediterranean cuisine that runs the gamut from gyros to their namesake falafel. For my inaugural visit, I tried the Combo Platter and was instantly transported to foodie heaven. The plate came with a heavy helping of protein (perfectly seasoned chicken and tender, rotisserie cooked then grilled lamb/beef) as well as buttery rice pilaf, a fresh Greek salata, house-made hummus, pita bread, and tangy tzatziki sauce that had my mouth burning but begging for more. The sheer amount of food wasn't the only thing that was impressive about this dish, however; the way that all the flavors—from the rice, meat, and the sauces—melded together was truly an experience that everyone needs to understand firsthand. Now that I know what Falafel Corner is capable of, I’ll be back to try more of their mouthwatering menu. 2690 East Bidwell Street, Suite 300, Folsom, 916-817-1184, falafelcorner.us/folsom.
