Parrot's Guide To Getting by in the Middle East

Gio and Elie are Lebanese and both speak Arabic. I don’t. I know somethings, but realistically I need to man up, buy that Rosettastone shit and get on their level. Until then this is all I need. If you don’t know about The Arab Parrot (, and feel like reading an amazing blog, get with it. The dude rules that’s all I need to tell you. Anyway he had a post awhile back about the only things you needed to know to get you through traveling in the Middle East, so here it is.

Adventure: Sahara Falafel (Anaheim)

My parent’s had this falafel spot in the Bay Area that they had been going to for years before we moved away. They hadn’t had any in a long time so as a change of pace, I decided to drive to one of my favorite parts of Anaheim, the Arabic district as we like to call it. To get some food at a small hole-in-the-wall falafel spot. My friend Gio swore by this place and it didn’t disappoint. I need to carry my camera more, and not just take photos with the iPhone. Check this short little trip after the jump.
