Snackshot of the Day: Falafel Platter

Photos of all things food and drink from The Daily Meal

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of falafel. Falafel is a dish made from crushed up chickpeas mixed with various spices, formed into balls, and fried. It can be served by itself, or in a sandwich or wrap. The falafel platter pictured is served at Zorba's Café, a Greek restaurant near Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. They serve a variety of sandwiches, salads, and soups.
