Taziki's Mediterranean Café Launches Crispy, Baked FalafelTaziki’s Mediterranean Café is giving its fans what they have been craving — starting Monday, April 22, across all locations, the brand is introducing its griddle-finished baked falafel.

Falafel has been the #1 requested item for the brand for years, but without fryers in the restaurants, it has been an elusive item. Now, the recipe has been perfected to be flavor-baked and griddle-finished to please every falafel fan. The better-for-you alternative to traditional fried falafel consists of a delicious blend of garbanzo beans and complementary herbs and spices perfectly baked into a plant-based, protein-packed street food. Serving as the ideal vegan and gluten-free option, guests can enjoy the baked falafel as an appetizer and on gyros, salads, and feasts.

“We’ve put our signature Taziki’s spin on a Mediterranean classic that offers a wholesome take on this flavorful item,” said Taziki’s CEO Dan Simpson. “Whether you’re already a falafel fan or this is a new culinary experience to you, Taziki’s baked falafel offers a delicious protein-rich, plant-based option for those striving to live a better lifestyle and looking for another way to enjoy Taziki’s.”

Taziki’s encourages its guests to eat well and live the good life by providing fresh, healthy menu items aligned with a classic Mediterranean diet, which has been ranked No. 1 for the seventh consecutive year by the U.S. News and World Report.
