Thank you, James Powell, for your beautiful essay on Elias Hanna’s life. I’d never tasted a falafel before arriving in Isla Vista in ’72 but immediately fell in love with them at his Baba’s Falafels restaurant. And while I tried many others through the years, none ever tasted nearly as good and I eventually gave up trying.
