In case you haven’t been to “Falafel Dream 2010” lately – things have changed and the options have increased: It definitely has some very special dishes to offer. Not only Falafel, there’s also fried veggies in a sandwich, the legendary ‚Vöner‘ (vegan Döner), or Halloumi cheese. The best part, though, are the eight different home made sauces, which sets the food sold at little stall apart from any competitors: Mango, peanut, sesame-soy, olive, garlic, onion, or spicy – “seven sauces are always there, and the eighth changes every week”, Wael tells us proudly. At the moment, beetroot sauce is offered. If you count all of the four main dishes that are available, the various sauces offer a wide range of combination options.
A special business idea
The little stall at Müllerstraße is widely accepted now – so well that Wael can afford to close it on the weekends. Falafel seminars and his catering service ensure that he doesn’t run out of work. He just found a flat just opposite to his stall. “The area around the S-Bahn station changes”, he observes. Wael thinks that it is a pity that there are new Döner stalls popping up everywhere while only a few people try to establish something new, something special.
Wael sells his falafel in pide instead of the usual flat bread – it works better with his sauces, he thinks. Many customers agree and call his creations “The best falafel in town”. Not only the area around the stall and the food changes, the little stall itself will disappear next year: Wael wants to buy an 11-meter-long historical S-Bahn wagon which he wants to set up at the same spot, in view of the Ringbahn. By the way: The S-Bahn was introduced to Berlin almost exactly 90 years ago – who knows, maybe “Falafel Dream” will exist as long..
