When it comes to fresh Mediterranean cuisine, Iowa City folks flock to Oasis – The Falafel Joint. The restaurant’s dishes feature fresh ingredients, and everything is made new daily. The namesake falafel is a blend of chickpeas, garlic, and other spices ground together and flash-fried in patty form, and locals can’t get enough of it. The eatery’s hummus is raved about as well, and diners love the smooth spread of chickpeas and tahini.
Don’t worry if you can’t go to Oasis Falafel’s downtown location. Oasis Fix, found in the University of Iowa’s Studio Arts building, provides hungry coeds and locals with the dishes they desire.
