Beetroot Falafel: An Appetizer Fit For a Sheikh

If it's good enough for Dubai's Sheikh Hamdan, we'll recreate one of Social House's famous recipes any day. The Middle Eastern royal has been spotted dining at the restaurant, which you can find inside The Dubai Mall, and we'd like to think we could tempt him over to our dinner table to try our version of this Beetroot Falafel dish.

What a great dinner party that would be!
