i don't think that philophil is a word in english, but since it sounds like "falafel", this is what a falafel is:
"a fried ball or patty made from ground chickpeas and/or fava beans. Falafel is usually served in a pita, which acts as a pocket, or wrapped in a flat bread known as lafa. The falafel balls are topped with salads, pickled vegetables and hot sauce, and drizzled with tahini-based sauces".
if this has nothing to do with what you were asking, i apologize!
