Middle Eastern Cuisine, Street Food, Pita Bread, Deep Fried Croquettes, Patty, Balls (think straight, please)

🧆 Meaning: An open pita bread with a delicious heap of round, deep-fried croquettes made from pasty chickpeas and/or fava beans. One of the balls in the heap is also cut in half, showing the green insides of the dish.

The 🧆 Falafel emoji signifies Middle Eastern cuisine. Although ‘falafel’ refers to the balls/patties or croquettes in the dish, many times it is interpreted along with the pita bread, as this combination is one of the commonest ways of serving this delicacy.

How and When to Use the 🧆 Falafel Emoji

  • For starters (puns intended), you can use 🧆 while sharing pictures and/or videos of falafels; a personal post for ‘trying falafel for the first time’ or even a repost of the ‘best falafel in town’, etc.
  • Also, 🧆 can be used while generally speaking of Middle Eastern food, either as an informative post about an upcoming food festival or even a mouth-watering video of Middle Eastern street food, anything.
  • On some platforms, 🧆 is designed without the pita. So, in such cases, this emoji can be used to refer to meatballs, keema balls, and other related dishes that compose of only croquettes.
  • In contexts of “What’s cooking” or “What did you have for lunch”, you can send 🧆 if falafel was what was happening.
