The Falafel Roll at Lille Amir My Favorite Late Night Snack in Oslo (Closed Permanently)

Lille Amir should be your last stop in Oslo after a night out. Trust me, you want the falafel rolls here more than any other kebab, burger, pizza or whatever junk you feel like shoving down your throat at this point. The falafel roll at Lille Amir is unique because the guys here make their own fresh falafel batter. Most places don’t bother with that. They use premade shit, which they just reheat when you place your order. Not, Lille Amir, though.

Note: This restaurant has closed permanently.

At Lille Amir, they have a freshly prepared batch of chickpeas, parsley, cilantro, tahini and all those yummy spices that go into a good falafel. When you order your falafel, priced at only NOK 69 by the way, they scoop up four spoons of this deliciousness and fry them fresh before your eyes. The end result is large, light, crispy balls. Soft and airy on the inside and crunchy to bite. However, you don’t want a single falafel, you want a double. That gives you another three or four falafel balls.

This is definitely a late night destination. Although, I have actually tried the falafel when sober, and it’s still enjoyable. That being said, most people would like to know when they close rather than when they open. As far as I have experienced it’s sometime between 03.00 and 03.30 in the night. I was met with closed doors once at 03.25 hours. That was a sad night.

Ask for a double to get twice the amount of falafel balls, for just a slight increase in price.

Make sure you get everything on, including hummus, spicy sauce and extra spicy sauce.

I get hungry looking at this even when I've not been drinking.
