Time Out says

Hand-crafted bourekas made fresh, and kept warm the traditional way.

If you're looking for a dose of nostalgia, and a good Mom & Pop eatery that has stood the test of time, then this is a must visit in Haifa's lower city. From the storefront born out of their legendary bourekas cart, Avi Alhades continues his family's tradition of providing the city with his hearty bourekas. They’re kept warm on the cart's plancha, and served up to order alongside a slow stewed egg, pickles and a sprinkling of zaatar spice. Try the signature warm Bulgarit cheese version, which oozes out of the soft and flaky handmade phyllo dough as you take a bite. Other flavors include: cheese and spinach, potato, and mushroom, which are all delicious in their own rite. Stop by in the early morning hours and you will get to watch the bourekas being rolled out by hand at the back counter. A mesmerizing foodie experience in and of itself, in this humble, yet historical spot.
