Falafel is an absolute favourite in the city centre, with salad bars, cafés and more all offering this vegetarian staple.
Falafel is a Middle Eastern dish made with chickpeas, spices and herbs and it seems that, as a city, we have all fallen in love with it. Whether you like them on a wrap, in a salad or just by themselves dipped into hummus, there's no denying that falafel is a delicious addition to any meal. Read on for five of our favourite places to get falafel in Dublin.
1. The Cedar Tree
Saint Andrew's Street, Dublin 2
The Cedar Tree is Dubin's longest-established Lebanese restaurant, offering a range of delicious traditional foods. If you're looking for authentic falafel, then this restaurant should be your first port of call. Served with a delicious tahini sauce, this truly is some of the best falafel in Dublin.
2. Keshk Café
Mespil Road, Dublin 4
This BYOB spot in D4 offers some of the best falafel in Dublin, alongside an impressive range of Middle Eastern dishes. There's a great atmosphere in the restaurant with a real family-style feel that makes you feel instantly comfortable as soon you walk through the door.
3. Umi Falafel

We stumbled across the @silkroadcafeie whilst out exploring. It's on the ground floor of a beautiful library museum in Dublin. The food was amazing and I was so impressed!! We ordered falafel salad plates - too giant crunchy falafels with hummus, pita breads and three salads of your choice. This plate of colour, texture and flavour was exactly what I needed.
