Finding good falafel and shawarma was easy for Freddy Zeideia growing up in the West Bank.

That proved far more difficult in the 1980s while working as a New York City cab driver. Zeideia took matters into his own hands in April 2002 and opened Best Falafel & Shawarma .

It wasn't long before Zeideia became the go-to guy for thousands in search of quality Middle Eastern street food.

Zeideia -- who has a truck and restaurant in Queens and cart in Midtown -- will be opening Best Falafel & Shawarma at the Mill Shoppes in Garfield on March 9.

Zeideia came up with his unique oval falafel recipe himself. He makes everything in-house from scratch, dishing up kebabs, meatballs, chicken over rice and more.
