Time Out Melbourne

Once you bite into a Half Moon falafel, there's no going back. Jostle your way to the counter of this unassuming little joint and order a warm pocket of tabouli, chickpeas, hommus, garlic yoghurt, pickles and black olives. They'll smoosh three crunchy Egyptian falafels onto the fillings to reveal a soft, bright green middle.

Demolish it in the communal courtyard outside and take a moment to appreciate Coburg's diverse population: students, musos, artists and Middle Eastern families, for a start.
