Founded in July 2006, Hallava Falafel had a three-fold mission: (1) sell affordable street food in Seattle (namely the Georgetown area); (2) create a high-quality falafel to sell in Seattle; and (3) prove that clean, quality (and non-Mexican) food can come from a mobile unit.

|Yup, apparently this truck is/was for sale|
Pretty sure it's just to sell the cart and not the business
|Yeah, there's a sandwich in there somewhere....|
|That falafel is trying to peek through the sea of tzatziki|
|Look at that magenta color from the Russian red relish!|
The sandwich also raised a couple of concerns. First of all, it was just very messy, and frankly, just an overkill on the tzatziki here. Since I ate it in the car, I resorted to a knife and fork to eat this one -- instead of getting the food all over the car...and my face. Also, while I appreciated the dill here, that was actually all I could taste for the next half-hour. I also think the falafel itself could have used a bit more seasoning (at least seasoning that's not dill).
If you're in the mood for some meat, Hallava Falafel also serves a slow-roasted sliced lamb-and-beef shawarma sandwich, also for $6.75.
Yes, it's a helluva falafel, all right. Not sure if I've ever used more napkins for a sandwich in my life. For me, it's merely OK. I say give this truck a shot and see what you think. 6.25/10
