‘Fast food’ and ‘good food’ sound mutually exclusive, but Ashkara manages to finesse both. This falafel joint isn’t all that pretty, but they’re open late, and their prices are dirt cheap. A small pita (not all that small) costs $3.50, and the falafel is divine; hot, crispy on the outside, with the perfect amount of texture and moisture when you bite into it. The self-service salad bar also allows customers to cram fresh toppings into their pita. Vegetarians and health-freaks aren’t the only ones that will find delight at Ashkara. The falafels are that good – and they’re actually pretty healthy. A shocking thought for late-night drunk food.
