The DC-based Amsterdam Falafelshop is headed for Davis Square and expects to open by this summer, per a post on Facebook. The shop specializes in Middle Eastern fare as interpreted by the Netherlands and is known for its lengthy toppings bar. Rumor has it the store will be taking over the former Diva Lounge space, where it will soon serve falafel and fries ready to receive over 20 types of sauces, pickles and such. AF boasts an under-five minute lag between ordering and having a sandwich in hand, plus entertainment: "You can see us frying it right in front of you!"
