Katie Quinn joins Dan to discuss falafel sandwichization, the problems with the pita, ideal accompaniments, and whether the ball really is the best shape. (Note that the falafel patty referenced in this episode is pictured above.)
They also address key falafel questions, including:
What's the ideal diameter of a falafel ball?
Should the Eater strive for bite variety or bite consistency when eating falafel, and why?
If you have a regular falafel ball, spicy falafel ball, and roasted red pepper falafel ball, in what order should you eat them?
In the end, Dan and Katie have a revelation about the fundamental meaning of falafel.
On a related note, watch this video, in which Dan and Katie test gourmet sea salts for NowThis News. Can they taste the merlot?
