They’re selling pita and Mezza Box and the portions are huge!


I ordered the Scotch Egg Falafel Mezza Box which was overfilled with mouth-watering falafel Scotch eggs, a mix of vegetables, including yummy fried aubergine, fried halloumi, hummus, pickles and four different sauces: garlic dill mayo, classic tahini, beetroot tahini and Alexandrian chilli.


As they were cutting the egg-filled falafel in half in front of me, I knew it would taste just as good as it looked, and I wasn’t disappointed.

Egyptian falafel tastes so different than those I’ve tried so far. But what’s its secret?


Well, Egyptian falafel is made with fava beans instead of chickpeas. Fava beans make the falafel lighter and moister than those made with chickpeas.


Wowshee take a step further and fill their falafel with runny Scotch egg before frying them to make them crispy on the outside and soft inside.


Wowshee’s reputation as the ‘Best falafel in London’ is definitely well-deserved, as they won the International Falafel Award in 2019.


Next time when you’re around Berwick Street, make sure you visit Wowshee Egyptian Falafel Bar and grab a pita or a Mezza Box for lunch. And the best part is, everything on the menu is under £10!
