Falafel is a deep fried ball, doughnut or patty made from ground chickpeas, fava beans, or both that started out as a traditional Middle Eastern food, that most likely originated in Egypt.

It is commonly served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flatbread known as taboon, "falafel" also frequently refers to a wrapped sandwich that is prepared in this way. 

The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables, hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces. Falafel balls may also be eaten alone as a snack or served as part of a meze (assortment of appetizers).

Hubbly Bubbly Falafel Shop has taken the Falafel craze to a new level, and they are helping to make falafel a much more recognized and fun to eat food in Central Florida. They have two locations now, one in Downtown Orlando, and the other in College Park.

Both locations are your standard fast casual spots where you order your food as you go through the line and request your base, your protein and then select toppings and sides. You can eat inside, or you can take it to go, as both locations are set in narrow spaces with limited seating.

Your first decision is to select a base of either Pocket Sandwich, a Salad Bowl or a Hummus Bowl that includes Pita Chips.

Next you select your protein with Falafel being the main thing, but you can also choose Lentils, Chicken or Lamb & Steak. The falafel is made with Georgie’s secret blend of freshly ground chickpeas and signature herbs and spices, hand-shaped into pucks and lightly fried until crispy.

Lentils are mixed with sauteed onions and spices served with a signature tangy salad on top. The chicken and the lamb & steak are served in a traditional shawarma style that is slow roasted and seasoned with Georgie’s own blend of secret spices, sliced hot off the spit and served straight to your dish.


After all of that, you can select a variety of toppings like a Bubbly Salad Blend which is a blend of lettuce, onions, parsley, lemon olive oil, and you can add things like lettuce, red onions, tomatoes, pickles, hummus, Mozzarella cheese, Spanish cheese, black olives, pickled turnips and peppers.

Finally you choose your sauce to top it off. You can go with Tahini, Garlic Sauce, Georgie's Dressing, Lilly Sauce or Tzatziki. You can spice things up with Burning Sauce, or even add Ranch dressing...and yes...Ketchup.

Here is an assortment of a Salad Bowl with chicken as the protein that is served with a side of pita chips. The two side orders are falafel balls on the right, and Mazel Tots on the left. The tots are crispy shredded tater tots tossed with a signature five spice seasoning and deep fried.

This is a Pita Pocket stuffed with chicken as the protein and an assortment of Bubbly salad blend, black olives, tomatoes and tzatziki sauce and a side of Crispy Cauliflower. Side choices include crispy cauliflower, mazel tots, falafel, spinach pies and pita chips with hummus or sauce.

Hubbly Bubbly serves up Baklava Fingers for a dessert option made with layers of phyllo dough, chopped walnuts, honey and butter.

If you can’t decide on what to try, they do offer Hubbly Plates that are perfect for trying a little bit of everything. This Includes falafel, hummus, a premium side, pita chips, Bubbly salad blend and your choice of chicken or lamb & steak.

Hubbly Bubbly Falafel Shop is open at the Downtown location from 11:00am until 9:00pm Monday to Thursday. They stay open until 3:00 am on Friday. On Saturday they are open from 4:00pm to 3:00am , and they are closed on Sunday.

Dark woods, vivid colors and comfortable seating create a cozy and intimate dining room setting.

Tastes of Orlando was invited to a special soft opening test run and was able to sample a few dishes and cocktails. Everything we ate tasted pretty spectacular, especially the Chile Rubbed Delmonico Steak. Although I do not comment much as to the service a restaurant provides during a soft opening, the staff at Firebirds did a fairly decent job for a test run. 

We started our evening off with the Lobster Spinach Queso.

This is a house favorite, and I thought all the flavors of this queso blended perfectly well together.



The BLT Salad is another house favorite dish. It was light, refreshing, and loaded with tasty bacon.

The salads are pretty big at Firebirds, so two people can easily split one salad.



Firebirds specializes in meats, and the hand carved Prime Rib encrusted with fresh herbs and pepper, is pretty spectacular.



The Prime Rib is available in 12oz. or 16oz. size. I ordered the 12oz., and had plenty leftover.

The Chile Rubbed Delmonico was an instant favorite. This is a 12oz. steak rubbed down with chile and other spices, then seared to lock the in the flavors.


For desert I ordered the Creme Brulee Cheesecake.

Firebirds cheesecake is very good. It is light and airy, so its not heavy at all and it's topped with caramelized sugar for the brule part and has a strawberry drizzle. 

Firebirds is open Monday – Thursday from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. and Friday – Saturday from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m. Half-priced appetizers and drink specials from the FIREBAR™ are served from 4 – 6:30 p.m. at both the bar and outdoor patio. The restaurant also offers banquet services, catering and gift cards. In addition, guests can register for Firebirds’ E-Club to receive exclusive offers, promotions and a birthday gift.
