This is the place for falafel! At the time of our visit, they had very limited access to kosher meat, as a result, only 4 choices: falafel, fried chicken schnitzel, shaushuka, French fries. The place is set back from the street so you need to...More

Who expected outstanding falafels in Kona town? These were amazing, with homemade pitas and lots of fresh veggies made for some of the best falafel I have ever had.
