Summing up in a sentence - It was the best falafel that I had during my stay in Israel. Go around the German colony and end your visit with a fulfilling meal at this place.

Haifa is the Is Israel Falafel and the Humus capital. one of the original place. I know the place from he origin when old couple run the Falafel. Their successor are doing grate job. I recommending also the just across the street - just original and fantastic like the Ha'zkenim and it's really nice to compare.

We were taken here fir what we are told is the best freshly made falafel one can get. Have to admit for a new falafel eater this was delicious( I was not overly hungry so that had nothing to do with the taste). It is a kind of grab and go, eat while you walk if you can type of... More

Even though the pita is reasonable the whole experience is very nice​, the few salads offered there are very good and fresh (cabbage, pickles, cucumbers & tomatoes, mild sauce and sharp one). The owners are very hospitable, friendly and have there for as long as I have been eating there (about 20 years). They also sell there drinks and for... More

This very small place serves delicious fallalel sandwiches. It located in very small street in north of Haifa. There are only very few seats and on the counter there are olives and spicy sauce. The fallafel themselves are very soft in a crusty shell. They are very tasty.

Hazkenim - in Hebrew the Eldery is a falafel stand for many years. Someone might say an historic place in haifa. Yet the falafel is very tasty fresh and hot. You eating while standing which might be seen as fast fast fast food. You must taste it to understand what is falafel.

Family brought us to their favourite spot, and we were not disappointed. Competition is across the street, but quiet. Even the tour groups seem to stop at this "establishment." A constant line. Falafel melts in your mouth. Loved the wholewheat pita bread: perfectly fresh and combined well with the salad and sauces inside. I only had a half (heal) and... More
