It's one of the first falafel shops in "Falafel Shalom" Chain. It's always fresh and tasty and you can see that many people are standing there waiting to buy their daily falafel.

The best falafel . The place is established at 1945 on the other side of Bezalel street. The children continue the tradition of their father. The best falafel you can get in Jerusalem !!

Simple. Nothing but falafel and some basic salads. You have to try the ashtanur with lots of hilbeh on every bite to get the true taste of one of jerusalems finest falafel recepies.

This place just happened to be right around the corner from the apartment where we stayed. Prices are fair, portions are huge, and the falafel is damn good! Make sure to try the spicy sauce.

This is, in my eyes, the best Falafel place in Jerusalem. Authentic, with no extra ingredients such as houmous and eggplants. A tiny place with great Falafel.

Very good falafel with no parking space around the place. The falafel has a unic taste and is worth to walk to it if you are in the area

This falafel/Laffa stand is an excellent place to get great falafel. Right outside the Station, it's very convenient and inexpensive. I suspect, from the picture, that they either moved from Bezalel, or opened another branch. Very tasty!
