This falafel and halloumi joint is owned by Mahmut Suvakci, who also runs Lily's Burger with fellow actor Joel Kinnaman. The restaurant used to be called Falafelbaren and the concept remains the same: vegetarian and vegan posh falafel in Södermalm.
Mahmut Suvakci, also known for his role in the Snabba Cash films, is involved in several Stockholm restaurants that focus on top quality fast food. One of them is Falloumi in Skanstull, which serves fresh-fried falafel with various accompaniments. Falafel and halloumi are served in pita, wraps and bowls which you can take away or eat in the small Mediterranean-influenced premises. Falafel fans come to satisfy their cravings for the popular chickpea dish, which was nominated for a Gulddraken, a prestigious Stockholm foodie award, in 2018.
The warm, welcoming premises are decorated with mismatched furniture and colourful walls, making guests feel as though they're eating in a charming little spot somewhere in sunnier climes. Washing lines hang from the ceiling alongside exposed pipes. During the daytime it's filled with hungry lunch guests and in the summer months you can eat your falafel outdoors in the al fresco area on Ringvägen.
