Maoz Veg is Open!

Maoz Veg, the European falafel eatery, is open in Dupont. The first U.S. store opened in Phila, PA five years ago.

On a whim I decided to walk on M Street yesterday to check on the progress and my luck!, it was open. The first day. I've been waiting for this day for a long time and they didn't disappoint. The falafel was great and you get a good meal for the money.

Single falafel pita was $4.95; that's five falafel balls crammed into a pita pocket. Perfect salad bar with fixings including beets, cooked cauliflower + broccoli, tomato, cucumber, red cabbage and more. Others on line were ordering one of the four combo meals (combination of falafel pita or salad and drinks plus fries).

Other food choices: salad bowls, Belgian and sweet potato fries, vegan rice pudding, seasonal soups, and three smaller sized pita sandwiches; including a vegan sandwich named the Verde.

There is bench seating inside and 5-6 individual seats outside in a small recessed patio area. I will be going again!

Moaz hours are 11AM-11PM Monday through Thursday, 11AM-3AM Friday + Saturday and 12PM-9PM on Sunday. The address is 1817 M Street NW. Between Farragut and Dupont Metro stations and on the 42 bus route (M Street stop).
