Wednesday Dinner: Amsterdam Falafel and Kebab

I headed up to Omaha after work tonight to see two of Will Johnson's bands, South San Gabriel and Centro-Matic at The Slowdown.

Since I had plenty of time before the show I called Jack Jackson to see if he wanted to grab some dinner. We decided on Amsterdam Falafel and Kabob on 50th between California and Underwood in the heart of Dundee.

Amsterdam Falafel follows the idea that if you're only going to do a few things, do those things well. There are two sandwiches from which to choose, falafel or kabob. You can also get fries and hummus. The sandwiches come with a choice of sauces - garlic, herb or spicy - and are served on toasted leavened bread in the European manner. The fries are dusted with curry powder.

I can safely say this was the best falafel I've ever had. It was nice and crispy but not dry on the inside and greasy on the outside. The kabob meat was unique too in that it contained a higher percentage of lamb than beef. Most places serve kabob meat that is much heavier on beef. Both sandwiches come topped with a tabouleh-like mixture and marinated red cabbage and chickpeas.

This sounds fantastic! I'm adding it to my list of Omaha restaurants to try.

And it was a blast from the past to see the Nap Web site. Any way you could get me a copy of that photo he used to have on the home page of the guy asleep with the schlong in front of his face? That was SO funny!

Gary,

Jackson is going to see if he can find that photo but he thinks it may have wound up in the Large Hardon Collider.

Never even heard of that place. I'll have to try it next time I am in town. I usually go to Victor's.
