A nice place in Wadi NISNAS rd., rather clean, but I must say I have eaten better falafel balls in my life. This stand is an iconic institute in Haifa, half a portion is only 8 shekels (like 2 $), so it's worth a bite.

There is an old debate between " Ha'Zkenim falafel" and "Michel falafel" accross the the street. We tried them both and decided that they are the winners (only on few points).

Always fresh, great taste. No bells and whistles. Simply excellent felafel. While you wait you'll be treated to felafels with tahini. The staff is very funny and inviting. Recommended !!!

It's been over 20 years and I never tire of this falafel place. I changed status, jobs, addresses - but would always remain loyal to this place. Always fresh, generous, tasty and not in any way less important - very friendly.
