Google Doodle decided to honor falafel balls on Tuesday by replacing their logo with three animated falafel balls.
In Tuesday’s animated Google Doodle, three falafel balls jump into a pita bread, spread with either hummus or tahini and filled with a salad, to replace Google’s daily logo.
This is not the first time Google Doodle honors food. Last year, Google honored the 4th of July with an interactive map of foods from across the country, and in 2017 it featured a doodle honoring rice noodles.
Google dubbed the falafel balls “the best thing that ever happened to chickpeas.”
Falafel is thought to have originated from ancient Egypt, later spreading to the Levant section of the Eastern Mediterranean, where it acquired its name.
Today, the falafel dish is the national food of Israel, Egypt and the Palestinians.
