Falafel V’Sabich Eyal

Time Out says

Haifa’s favorite fried eggplant sandwich.

Look for the endless line of ‘sabich’ sandwich seekers, in a seemingly unassuming corner in upper Haifa, and you have probably found Eyal and his famous food stand. Eyal’s passion for feeding his regulars is evident in watching him serve customers from behind the tiny counter, and from his smiling eyes, as he describes his food. Unlike many in the street food business, he left a life of comfort as a working engineer to carry out his mission of bringing the best sabich to Haifa’s food scene. We’re glad he did, as this Iraqi specialty, comprised of slow- roasted egg, sliced, fried eggplant (a perfected recipe), cooked potato, salads, and sauces, carries an indescribably comforting feeling. Eyal’s, of course, features all homemade and fresh ingredients, including his tahini sauce, and all handmade salads. He tops his pitas off with a dash of his secret spice blend (and even a ball of freshly fried falafel if you please). Trust us when we say that sabich has never tasted it better.
