Crisp’s New Casablanca Sandwich Gives You Eggplant Two Ways
As far as I know, fancy falafel chain Crisp hasn’t debuted a new sandwich in a while after throwing Asian and Mexican-hybrid sandwiches along with falafel burgers our way. The Crisp on Wheels truck has been talking about a new creation called the Casablanca on Twitter recently and since the truck only comes downtown one day a week it wasn’t likely I’d get to try it. Lo and behold, a look at the menu for the Fulton St. location shows it’s offered there too. If you like eggplant, this thing gives it to you in two forms.
The Casablanca is $7.35 and comes packed with falafel, babaganoush, fried eggplant, lettuce and Morroccan carrot salad. Strangely, the carrots were my favorite part of this sandwich although the fried slices of eggplant nestled in the bottom came in close second.
Other than the falafel balls, the biggest component of this sandwich is the babaganoush at the bottom which made up the last few bites of the sandwich. If you’re not a fan, you may want to ask them to go easy on it, or just order another sandwich. This is the second-cheapest sandwich on the menu after the base model, and it was really good. It’s up to you to decide if you want to pay $8 for falafel and fixings.
