Haifa’s reigning kings of falafel.

When you turn the corner and happen upon the chartreuse colored shop with the face of the smiling man, you know that you’ve found Haifa’s #1 falafel joint. Although most people don’t just stop in accidently, their cult following hasn’t changed the smile or the hospitality one receives inside. Falafel balls of the green variety are laced with heaps of fresh parsley and cilantro (hence the choice of store front colors), and fried fresh to order. Eat your complimentary ball of falafel that’s been dunked in tahini sauce to whet your appetite while you peer over the counter and watch your lunch come to life. Falafel balls bubble away in a hot bath of pristine oil until golden and tender. The family owned and run legend from Haifa’s neighbouring famed Wadi NisNas neighbourhood has now held its own in Haifa’s new downtown.
