Ate here a couple of times. Falafel in pitta and salad and chicken in pitta. Clean, quick service. Just off the main Jaffa gate Road but away from the crowds. OK for a quick pit stop.

These were some great eats. English menu. We ordered falafel in a pita, shawerma in pita, and hummus all for about 80NIS. Delicious and a good deal.

Yahudi hummus is different from the Lebanese hummus. A bit on the bland side with no hot sauce available. But otherwise, the hummus and falafel platter is very good and fresh. The baklava is not so good. Prices are expensive in this so called Holy...More
