“Melting in your mouth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I heard about this place 2 months ago and went there and it was worth every bite! When you enter the place the owner gives you a ball of Falafel with Tehina as a welcome blessing. It melts in your mouth. I took the regulare full PITA - the salad was fresh and all together it was a fantastic Vegi lunch.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

My husband and I were very pleased with the food here. Best Falafel we have ever had!! We also loved the Kibbe there. We were in Haifa for two days and ate there both days! Even took a sandwich to go!

“Good but there is Better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Falafel Hazkenim is an institution in Haifa because its been around for so long, just like Michelle, a falafel joint right across the street. Both are located in Wadi Nisnas, an old Arab neighborhood in Haifa that is safe and interesting to walk in. However, for a falafel foodie like me, who also prefers healthier options, I find both the above places make falafel the old way - using too much overused oil. What you get are falafel balls that are so brown and dark from oil that is really not good for you. Check out Falafel Kikar Paris near the square of that name next to the first station of the Carmelit. This small place is so clean and changes the oil not to mention they use garlic in the falafel balls. What you get are yellow golden balls that are light and very tasty.
