    Terry Davis in Cedar City's Note:

    Don't let the name fool you! these are really tasty and good for you. I used this name because when we went to Israel one of our traveling buddies said he would never eat anything that sounds like awful and he called them Awful Falafels, but it is he that missed out. This is as authentic to the ones in Israel as I could find.
