Some people choose falafels for Meatless Mondays, but for vegans and vegetarians, falafels are just as delicious during the rest of the week. The Middle Eastern cuisine is made from chickpeas, vegetables and seasonings. With the breaded outer layer, pita bread is optional but a good combination.

For suburban residents, Naf Naf Grill has a scrumptious falafel plate that includes pita, tahini, pickles, hot pepper mix, and basmati rice, Israeli salad or homemade fries.

There are a couple of Chicago locations sprinkled around at 326 N. Michigan Ave., and 309 W. Washington St.

North siders are close enough to the Skokie location at 5716 W. Touhy Ave., and the Evanston location at 1629 Orrington Ave.

Illinois suburban residents and Chicago Metra riders can get close to other locations by the BNSF Railway Metra trains or Union Pacific West Line Metra trains. The Naperville restaurant is at 1739 Freedom Dr., and the Aurora restaurant is at 4430 Fox Valley Center Dr.

Or, skip the BNSF train ride altogether and enjoy Jaffa Bagels in Ogilvie Transportation Center West at 500 West Madison Street. Feel like staying home? GrubHub is a highly recommended website for deliveries, and it keeps track of all restaurant delivery hours, locations and radius.

Enjoy a veggie falafel sandwich with hummus, lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes from Jaffa Bagels from the comfort of Chicago homes.

The service is friendly and professional at the Naperville location of Naf Naf Grill and Ogilvie's Jaffa Bagels. Any time a restaurant's service is as good as the food, it's worth a visit.
