Turkish Meze – Mamaroneck, New York

Falafel – So light, yet filling

The fact that we live in an area with a dearth of good food options is inspiration for us to search long and hard for good grub. Sure, we could schlep to Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens and grab a yummy vegan meal. However, when folks work as hard as we do and are beat at the end of the day, just the thought of dragging our butts on the train or driving for an hour only to not find parking seems daunting. 


Since we’ve been on a Middle Eastern kick of late, Turkish Meze, located in Mamaroneck, NY (about 15 minutes outside of NYC) looked like it was worth a shot, and I’m glad we went! For starters, the waitstaff was very attentive and knowledgeable. When I asked the waitress if the lentil soup was vegan, she said wasn’t, and pointed out all of the vegan options they offered which was a good amount. Within three minutes- I’m not exaggerating- our meal arrived both fresh and hot. We ended up having hummus, falafel, piyaz(white bean salad), coban salatasi, (shepherd salad) and a complimentary olive/capers spread that I especially enjoyed. 

The vegetables in our salads were crisp and laden with lots of fresh, chopped herbs such as mint and parsley. The falafel was very light, with a crispy exterior and soft, flavorful inside. For dessert we enjoyed a sweet baked pear (sans the ice cream). The portions were generous – we wrapped up the leftovers- and the food was filling. After our meal, the owner came over and made sure our meal was enjoyable. We will definitely return someday and try other dishes.
