Falafel becomes McFalafel

Published June 3rd, 2001 - 02:00 GMT

Falafel, a universal food in most of the Middle East, was reincarnated Thursday, May 31, as McFalafel at Cairo branches of McDonald's. 


The US fast food chain will serve falafel, a fried dish of chickpeas, in McDonald's hamburger buns and sell each sandwich for about 40 cents. 


Falafel is traditionally made with seasoning including fennel, parsley, oil, coriander and sesame. ― (AFP, Cairo)
