DISHES WE’RE THANKFUL FOR AROUND BOSTON
Amsterdam Falafelshop, 248 Elm St., Somerville, 617-764-3334, www.falafelshop.com
Long a fan of D.C.’s Amsterdam Falafelshop, I couldn’t have been happier when a branch of the pita purveyor opened in Somerville’s Davis Square. The falafel itself is delicious, cumin-scented, crisp on the outside, and properly cooked on the inside. But it’s the toppings bar that makes this the best falafel sandwich in town, with more than a dozen pickles, sauces, and salads to choose from.
