Stopped in to pick up a carry out lunch while in the neighborhood for another errand. I got 2 falafels. It's a friendly place with lots to offer. The falafels came with the expected hummus, tahini, and salad and fried and a side salad. Excellent, fresh falafel, well worth it. I look forward to going back to try more food.

Great food, but not for the faint of heart. It is nearly always packed. On our first visit, the hustle and bustle was a little intimidating, but by our second we were family. They start you with 6 to 8 small appetizers - pickled beets, corn, cabbage salad, coleslaw, chickpeas, etc. The entrees are quite varied, tasty and reasonably priced - schnitzel, roast or grilled chicken, chicken livers served with grilled onions or hummus, meat balls, and a half dozen other items. Breakfasts are typical Israeli and really great. Service is exceptional and the owner is always on hand. Patrons are largely Israelis, South Americans and locals in the know - most are regulars some of whom eat here every day. The hummus and falafel are terrific. This is now one of our favorite places for very casual dining.

The food is excelent and the service is excelent as well, the labne, hummus and shackshuka are one of the best i`ve ever tried, borekas and sju are incredible as well. You must visit this place if you want to feel like you are in bat yam or something like it

I went to this place because a lot of people raved about it...to be fair I'm vegetarian so often times I have limited choices.. Hummus was really good, lentil soup just ok. The place is small, staff were nice.

When you tire of Cubano food (difficult but it can happen) or you are looking for something different, check out Etzel Itzik's. It says deli but don't expect corned beef and matzah brei. This is real Israeli fare from falafel to grilled whole branzino and chicken hearts if you are up for them.

They bring out an array of small salad sides including beets, pickled vegs, cokes slaw, corn salad and pita. The main dishes looked great but it was a hot day so we went for the appetizers. Plates of labneh with zatar and olive oil, matbucha (spicy tomato/pepper spread) and a grilled eggplant/hummus dish were our choice.

My hit was the limonana (a green icy lemonade with ground up mint). This place was rockin' and English and Spanish definitely took a backseat to to Hebrew. Remember that they close a little early on Fri and Sat (4:30 pm).

Don't expect perfect service but it was fun.
