If there was a Maoz in Boston, I would eat there for lunch every single day. Have you been to a Maoz? Prior to our trip to DC, I had only eaten at Maoz in Europe, Amsterdam, many, many times. I stalked Maoz, checking out where new locations opened up, never seeming to be in a place I would be visiting.


As soon as our trip to DC was planned, I had Maoz on the brain. I only wish we had gotten there sooner.

This quick, casual, take out or eat in spot is glistening with cleanliness, bright, and a nice cool break from the oppressive DC heat.


Maoz offers salads, falafel, fries, fresh juices. The menu is small, but focused on high quality vegetarian food. I usually get some form of falafel, either in a salad or in a pita, and then start in on the toppings.

Maoz Vegetarian Falafel

From pickles to olives, seasoned carrots, red peppers, beets, onions, and chickpeas, you can build yourself a lunch that is packed with textures, flavors, and nutrition.

And then there are the sauces. Salsa, clantro sauce, pickled onion chutney, tahini, creamy garlic. . . there are so many, and I usually have a bit of everything.

They need to make the pita pocket bigger. Smile

Maoz is an amazing option for an inexpensive lunch while traveling. The one in DC seemed to be a hot spot for nearby workers. We were there at noon on a Monday, and it was buzzing with takeout orders. I long to be lucky enough to work near a Maoz in Boston. Someone open a franchise, pretty please?

Because it was so hot, we followed lunch in another cool place that I don’t often get to, Pinkberry. Mango fro yo with fresh raspberries. I love that they offer really small portions for people looking for a little treat.


Maoz is definitely my favorite fast food chain. Do you have a chain restaurant that you love, or an item at a chain restaurant that you crave?

    I’ve never tried most of the chains, but I like Cheesecake Factory and California Pizza Kitchen.

    I go to DC a few times a year and I’ll have to keep Maoz in mind for a quick bite to eat!

    I love Maoz! I eat there at least once a month in Paris, and I am
    far from being vegetarian. The sandwiches are cheap and delicious like you said, and a great alternative to other falafels that are far to big for one person. So happy to know they’re in the states! Hope you get one near you soon!

    I LOVE Maoz! I went to one in Amsterdam… two meals in a row. I wish they would open one in Los Angeles, I’d go every day!

    Never been to DC so I haven’t tried this place. I like Subway. OH NO!

      I LOVE Subway veggie subs! I only wish they would let me behind the counter so I can add all of my own toppings!

      I’ve been to Maoz in NY once. I definitely love the topping buffet and the tastes and textures.

      Love Love Love Maoz. Nice to see your post on them. I know MVO and I have emailed them countless times to open a location in Boston and they have replied saying Boston is on their list. I think if people bug them enough, it’ll happen ;)

      I totally get cravings for popeye’s fried chicken. I know, I know. But its so dang good.

      Yay I’m excited to have won! :)

      I used to live & work in NYC (for 7 years after college!) and I’m very familiar with Maoz! I love their food and really wish they’d come to Boston!

      If you like Indian food, there’s also a good place that is a global chain (I’ve been to their location in Singapore too) called Saravan Bhavan. It’s really tasty and the price is right (I should caveat by saying it’s all vegetarian food).
