Somewhere to eat on the 90

So tomorrow we'll be driving up the 90 from the Dead Sea to the Golan.

We'd like to break our journey somewhere interesting en route along the Jordan Valley. It could be somewhere simple like a hummus or falafel. Palestinian food is fine. Prefer to steer clear of the gas station corporates like cafe cafe et al.

Any great suggestions people?

There are various facilities dotted along the route. Probably better to drive and stop when you require a break, rather than plan it ahead of time. If you feel up to an initial 2 hour drive or so, there is a new and large shopping centre with numerous outlets at Tzemach, just before the Kinneret.

You could wait till you get to Beit Shean and find a number of local options for falafel, shawarma, shipudim, etc.

Shopping centre is not quite the vibe we are seeking, but thanks for the tip!

There aren't many options along that route that aren't the "gas station corporates like cafe cafe".

The Rotenberg Restaurant on the Jordan River just opposite of Kibbutz Gesher offers very good (but pricey) food and a very interesting visit as well. www.ekinneret.co.il/site/eng/ip.asp…

I can definitely disrecommend the felafel place at Mifgash Habika (just north of Petzael). This is a place with a few eateries etc. where buses often stop for a break. One day last week I was on a bus that pulled in there at about 6:30 p.m. for a five-minute break. Famished, I ran to the Yemenite felafel place (that might not be its name and I have no idea whether there's an English sign; that wasn't on my radar!) and grabbed a felafel. It was awful. I wasn't expecting gourmet food, but there are felafels and felafels!

90 runs through the desert and therefore has very limited amount of places to eat. Gas station eateries are actually some if the best in the country. Mifgadh Habika is your best best before Beit Shean. Take into consideration that tomorrow is Friday and many uf not most places along that route will be closing by around 1 or 2, exceot the gas station stires offering sandwiches and snacks.
