Hey. We're taïm mediterranean kitchen.
taïm means 'tasty.' That's the thing we're going for, but we're also going for healthy and easy and fun. We opened in 2005 in NYC's West Village with a tiny storefront (and a lot of chickpeas), but today we have 8 locations and counting in NYC, DC, and beyond. Since the beginning, we've gathered the best ingredients, spices, and time-honored techniques of Mediterranean cooking and brought them together for the most delicious lunch, dinner, or quick bite you can get anywhere - made freshly just for you.
So, what makes taïm falafel so tasty?
7 things to be precise. In no particular order.
1. THE RECIPE
Straight from Tel Aviv with an Einat-inspired twist. Think fine dining packed in a pita.
2. THE INGREDIENTS
Chickpeas. Onion. Garlic. Cumin. Coriander. Salt & Pepper. And a whole lotta love. Using the freshest, highest quality herbs and spices makes all the difference.
3. THE FLAVORS
Original green and spicy Harissa. Because in this case, variety really is the spice of life.
4. NO FILLERS
Chickpeas are the main ingredient—no baking soda, baking powder, or breadcrumbs to bulk up the balls.
5. MADE FROM SCRATCH, DAILY
It tastes fresh because it is.
6. FRIED TO ORDER
And never over fried. You get it hot, just the way it’s served in a Tel Aviv falafel stall.
7. GREAT TEXTURE
Crispy, crunchy on the outside. Moist on the inside.
