Maoz CLOSED 2395 Telegraph Ave./Channing Way, 2 blks. S of campus, (510) 356-4090. Daily 11-10, Thur-Sat to 11; $.
The Maoz dining concept originated in Amsterdam in 1991 and has spread throughout the world. In Berkeley, it takes the form of a casual interior, with large chunky tables, tiles with a green-and-white pattern covering walls and ceiling, and big windows looking out to The Ave. The Mediterranean menu features a delicious chickpea falafel-pita bread sandwich, salads, and popular sides such as sweet potato and Belgian fries. The best deal is a combo that includes a falafel sandwich, fries, and a drink of fresh-squeezed juice (carrot, orange, and apple). Portions are generous, and you can pile on as much salad stuffing as you can eat. Everything is made fresh daily; the pita bread is imported from Israel; and the menu includes gluten-free, celiac, and vegan options.
