Great late night spot. I think you should go only if you like falafel! It has a very limited menu. But the falafel is the best I have tried so far in the country. Freshly made, great pita bread also. They could improve the veggies, they were passable only. But the hummus, garlic sauce, hot sauce, pita and falafel were all top notch. Be prepared, truly a hole in the wall type spot, but a good find nonetheless.

after parking at A.Venue Mall, was surprised to see that Beni's is right out of the side exit of the mall. The newly cooked falafel was very good. Price is affordable. The place is a bit small but was clean enough. The shakshuka was just OK.

We bought the falafel sandwich - 135 pesos
and the 5 pc falafel only - 75 pesos
Along with me is my very long friend Mahmoud from Cairo, Egypt
He did not like the taste the falafel and so didn't I

For those who wonder what falafel is, it is ground chickpeas fried to patties
At those prices, you just may opt to buy more serious food that will be more worthwhile
(no offense to chickpeas) just across the mall where there is a burger, pizza or tapa restaurant where you can also park your vehicle.

Do not try to park your vehicle in front (Valdez Street) of this establishment. It is a one-way jeepney route where it can be towed and impounded by MAPSA.

This place is not much to look at from the outside but their falafal pockets are the tastiest around! They make and cook the falafals to order which means they're not dried out. The pockets are filled generously and the garlic sauce and chilli take it to another level. It was our favourite meal in makati and probably the cheapest!
