Persian Wrap

A hidden-away falafel shop worth finding



pened by an electrical engineer who left his engineering career to pursue his passion of bringing authentic Persian cooking to Boston (or, well, at least Newton), Jake’s Falafel Corner engineers hand-rolled, flavor-packed falafel in a tiny, hidden-away spot. Order it wrapped in pita with lettuce, tomato, onion, carrots, and pickles and dressed with tahini. Or try the chicken kabob plate or the beef and lamb shawarma.

Chickpeas were first harvested 7,500 years ago in Turkey. They grow in pods on small bushes and, in the United States, come mainly from California, Idaho, Montana, and Washington State. Annual sales have tripled in the last three years, to about $120 million.
