Falafel #2

Lunch today was at a local restaurant in a Druze village, after a jeep tour of the Golan Heights. The owner brought out a family style spread, as you can see.

This falafel was definitely notch above the first one. Hot and crispy, fresh from the oil, it was almost too hot to pick up right away. The sesame seeds on top gave it a extra nutty flavor. I preferred the texture of this falafel, it was firm but still soft, with more spices. The homemade hummus and tahini were delicious. And best was the labna, slightly salty, almost like a chunky ricotta, with a well of olive oil and zatar.
