#4: Ridiculously cheap and ubiquitous falafel
12 shekels dude. That’s not even $3 for a kosher (BADATZ no less) falafel in laffa bread. Each sandwich contains (no joke) about 18 freshly made falafel balls, as well as the usual stuffings (skip the freedom fries – that’s just overkill), hummus, tehina, chariff, salad etc. and then you can add as much onions, fried eggplant, mango sauce etc. etc. as you like. At the joint we hit, the owner kept passing around a bowl of even more falafel balls. We ate enough to feed a family. The particular joint we hit was at the bottom end of the Machaneh Yehudah market. Look for it if you’re ever there, it’s awesome.
Who’s we? Why pictured above is none other than mobius of Jewschool, me and Harry from the View from Here. Earlier I brought Ariela from Urban Achiever some instant soup because she was feeling ill and met up with our own Alli at Cafe Hillel. Ariela is at Hebrew U. and Alli is doing a short stint at Neveh before starting WUJS.
But yeah… Jewlicious and Jewschool met face to face and only a couple of falafel balls were hurt! Moby was actually pretty cool and he doesn’t know it yet, but I’ll be seeing him again tonight. Harry is unbelievable – the man knows things. More on that later!
