Baladie Gourmet Cafe

Baladie is a Mediterranean cafe near Union square.  I swung in one day to grab a few items to go.  Not because I particularly like Mediterranean food, but Ojan does, and I was looking for a couple small items to supplement a meal we had waiting for us at home.

I don't have much to say about the place, besides the fact that the name "Gourmet Cafe" is a bit misleading.  Not entirely sure what would be considered gourmet here. It was not good.
Falafel.  $0.60 each.
Once I ordered the falafel, I heard a microwave start up.  Not a good sign.  The falafel are not prepared fresh to order, and it was obvious.

It wasn't crispy on the outside, and was fairly spongy throughout.  The flavor was ok, but overall, being microwaved lead to a pretty crappy product.  Maybe this wouldn't have mattered as much inside a wrap?  But as an a la carte item, microwaved falafel was not a winner.

Would not get again.
Dolma.  $0.60.
The dolma was equally disappointing.  It was very soggy, both the filling and the wrapper.  The rice inside was just mush.  It was also incredibly oily.

Definitely would not get again.
