I'm not even sure if I spelled that right. Anyways, I went to Pita Pit yesterday and our favorite worker guy put some of the stuff on a fork for me to try. YUCK! It was so salty! Is it supposed to be salty like that or maybe it was just the kind I tried? Same thing for falafel. The kind I tried there was also salty. It was good at first but after awhile I coudn't finish it.

Falafel is one of my new favorite foods, and I hate salty foods. I've never had salty falafel before. Don't know about that other stuff.<br><br><br><br>

Strange - almost every place I've tried it commercially - like Pita Pit - makes it WAY saltier than when I make it myself.<br><br><br><br>
Babaganoush...I'm not so sure. It can end up salty due to "salting" the bitterness out of eggplant but shouldn't end up being too salty. Sounds like it wasn't made right?

It sounds like they just make both way too salty for you. I love both falafel and baba ganouj, and I'm not big on salt. Try another place or make it yourself. You can buy a falafel mix or find recipes for both online.

You forgot to tell that baba ganouj is made out of eggplant.<br><br>
// Lucky that I usually call eggplant <span>aubergine</span> or even 茄子.

Try them again at an authentic Mediterranean restaurant (the appetizer plates will give you lots of cheap choices)---you might find them to be really good!

Babaganoush is essentially hummus made out of eggplant instead of chickpeas. At least that's the easiest description I can come up with!

I've never had babaganoush or falafel that were too salty, even from the Pita pit.<br><br><br><br>
Give them another try. I would second the suggestion of a mediteranean restaurant!!!

A mediterranean (I'm sure that's spelled wrong) restaurant would be great if I didn't live in a small little hick town. Well it's not too small, but small enough not to have nice restaurants like that.
