Falafel with a green side

The owner of Falafel Factory, coming to 18th Street in mid-January, calls it a more healthful choice.

Falafel with a green side

The Subway chain compares its nutrition facts against those of the fast-food giants.

Enter the Falafel Factory, a takeout due to open in mid-January at 32 S. 18th St., in the now-closed Joseph's Shoes shop.

Owner Rob Rimeris says his baked falafel has less fat, sugar, cholesterol, and sodium than a 6-inch turkey from Subway -- and is 30 percent larger, to boot.

Falafel Factory, Rimeris' first restaurant undertaking, will be simple: six falafel sandwiches (fried as well as baked, in such varieties including Hawaiian and BBQ), three sides, and beverages.
