Every now and then I would forgo my usual route to the Mass Pike, 128, and 95 to drive out through Watertown and pick up a falafel from Sepal, a little restaurant just off Mt. Auburn Street. I still remember the fragrant moment of opening up the tin foil for a behind the wheel falafel-fest. (I'm sure the musakhan and other dishes were equally fine, but I could never resist the simple pleasure of a perfect falafel.)
Watertown is famous, Sepal's has moved to an MIT food court in Cambridge, Stereo Jack's has closed but--good news!--Russ is still selling reconditioned turntables and $1 records in Watertown. At least he was four months ago.
