Meet the king himself, Freddy Zeideia, at this brick-and-mortar expansion of his popular Queens street cart. His crunchy, spice-flecked falafel pitas are loaded with lettuce, tomato, onions, pickled turnips, tahini, and hot sauce -- a formula that helped him win a 2010 Vendy Award for best street food in New York City. The recognition led Zeideia to expand his cart empire and open this Astoria fast-casual, where not much has changed regarding the food. Falafel is still the main event, but with a grill that’s nearly the size of his former mobile kitchen, he’s serving more shawarma, mezze spreads, and spinach-cheese turnovers than ever before. If lines are ever too long, you can expect free falafel samples to curb hunger pains. Long live the king.
