If you like real Egyptian falafel and fuul (beans) you'll be pleased to hear about a new takeaway on Jamaica Road/Tanner Street (just opposite Shad Thames). It's called Only Fools and Falafels, and is the real thing - not the standard London kebab joint. The owner/manager is Egyptian and is very nice. It'd be great if we locals could give this place some support! Their details are 142 Tanner Street, SE1 2HG; telephone 020 7231 8664. PS: I have no vested interest, other than that I love Egyptian falafel and fuul.

My Egyptian colleague Khalid was raving the other day about how fantastic and authentic the food is.

Just been. I got falafel and feta, or feta-like cheese with salad, including lots of rocket. Tahini and chilli sauce too. 3.50. The falafel was better than they do in Tas, which I think is quite dry and mealy. The pitta had that smokiness so maybe they have some wood-fired oven or something. Decent price I thought. Will definitely be going again.
The staff were nice too.
They do a chickpea and brussel sprout spicy dish and an okra one, and rice. I'll have to try them next, though I think they may dishes that change.
They do several animal dishes too.

A down side- I went about an hour ago and it was closed. I just phoned and no answer. No opening times on the shop front or the leaflet they gave me last night.

great minds and all that, beetroot. So did I and was disappointed. My walk was probably shorter than yours though!

Where can we get a good kebab that delivers in SE1 (not El Turkistan). Any ideas?
