Fallafel Ma'oz

24 Tevet 5766

Fallafel Ma'oz is a family-owned and operated business in Jerusalem, founded in 1965.

Conveniently located on King George Street, across from the Bank Leumi and Mashbir department store, Fallafel Ma'oz is a great place to grab a quit bite, or have a full meal while enjoying the hustle and bustle of the diner-like atmosphere inside, or the more relaxed sidewalk tables, or you can take your order to one of the nearby parks.

The fallafel is good, but the shwarmah is excellent. And, of course, it is an avodah ivrit business. When one of the employees was asked if this was on purpose, he made a face as if to say "What are you talking about? Of course." He then confirmed this verbally....

Half orders are available and the all-you-can-eat salads and sauces include shug (Middle-Eastern, very spicy salsa), tehinah (crushed seseme seeds, oil, parsley, & lemon), hilbeh (crushed fenigreek seeds), ambah, onions, cucumbers, and several different kinds of peppers.

BeDaTz Mahziqei DatOpen later than most of the neighboring restaurants, until 11:00pm, Fallafel Ma'oz is certified Kosher l'Mehadrin by the Bet Din Tzedeq (BeDa"Tz) Mahziqei Dat (Belz).
