Hubbly Bubbly Falafel Shop
3405 Edgewater Drive, College Park, Florida 32804
Imagine a Mediterranean/Middle Eastern-style Chipotle and you’ll have a good idea of the concept behind Hubbly Bubbly Falafel Shop. In a cheery environment, Hubbly Bubbly has an authentic taste with meat roasting on skewers to go with the fresh hummus, pita, and vegetable salads down the line. Everyone shows up for the food but always come back to see Georgie. Georgie is the talkative Lebanese owner and, if you’re lucky, by the end of your meal, he will bring samples of new dishes to your table.
My usual order is a hummus bowl with fresh falafel. The hummus base is smooth with paprika and olive oil poured over it. My favorite toppings are the pickled radishes and homemade tabbouleh salad. By the end of the line, my bowl always looks like a bright, healthy rainbow. The crunchy vegetables with the creamy hummus make for a great, lighter bite. Whether you eat your food with a fork or with pita, you always have enough left to take home for later.
The spinach pies are another must-have! The spinach marinated with a delicious blend of spices is then wrapped in a crispy filo dough. The Spinach pie is prepared fresh in-house or sometimes delivered each morning from a nearby bakery. The savory pastry is delicious and served fresh from the oven. Along with a delicious lentil dish in a tomato sauce base, the spinach pies were a suggestion from Georgie when he found out I was a vegetarian. Since then, I have always trusted Georgie’s recommendations.
Hubbly Bubbly Falafel Shop is a staple on Edgewater Drive in the College Park neighborhood. The local business has a unique menu and boasts an exciting, local beer selection. With a staff that is more than willing to make suggestions, it’s a great place to try new things in an inviting atmosphere. While you’re there, tell Georgie I say hello!
