Ingredients: Made to order. I picked red onions, red peppers, arugula, carrots, guacamole, mixed greens and spinach.
Description: Whenever I can’t decide what to eat I make a wrap. A simple, safe option that’s hard to mess up. I have made so many of my own wraps that I think it’s safe to say I know a good one when I taste it.
The Hub’s falafel wrap deserves to be in that category. When you order a wrap or sandwich at the Hub you can top it with an unlimited amount of a select assortment of vegetables.
I chose to top mine with red onions, red peppers, arugula, carrots, guacamole, mixed greens and spinach.
The only downside was that traditional falafel ingredients like turnips, pickles and yogurt-tahini sauce were not available. My wheat wrap was also topped with feta cheese, Dijon mustard and a little bit of mayonnaise to avoid it from being too dry.
Price: The wrap costs $5 and for an extra $2 you can add one protein option (falafel, in my case). I found the price high.
But I bought it because the sandwich wrap line was the shortest and I was pressed for time.
Once my wrap was tightly rolled, it was grill-pressed for a crunchy, warm finishing.
If you’re looking for the best falafel experience in your life, the Hub may not be the place.
But if you’re looking for something that tastes good and is filling without putting yourself in a food coma, then I recommend trying the falafel wrap — if your wallet can afford it.
