The only thing that was wrong about Aba's Falafel, until now, was that it was available only at certain farmers markets in the Rhinebeck area, which meant it couldn't be found at all during the off season. But now lovers of the popular vegan booth won't have to suffer falafel withdrawal: Aba’s has opened a restaurant in the village of Rhinebeck, serving falafel six days a week, year-round. Created and run by a couple from Israel who missed Israeli food, Aba's now has a storefront on E. Market Street. The menu is simple: hummus, falafel, with pita ($8) or without; a variety of handmade Israeli salads; tahini, pickles and hot sauces, plus Roy’s special lemonade (made with anise). They also serve malawach, fried phyllo dough served with tahini, grated tomato and hot sauce, and sabich, which is fried potato, eggplant salad with tahini and a mango curry sauce in a pita (each $10.) It’s all delicious, freshly made, vegan and incredibly satisfying. Visit now, or in the dead of winter. They’ll be there. Read the full review. Aba’s Falafel 54 E. Market St., Rhinebeck, NY (845) 876-2324 Tuesday–Sunday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
