Best Hummus and Falafel deep in the heart of Jerusalem. Located inside the sook. Tiny place, 3-4 tables but delicious food. There is no set charge for plates, so beware, may overcharge tourists.

Great place to eat falafel and hummus in a busy part of the old city. Washroom facilities are meagre but you come here for the food right?

Best hummus I have tasted - truly authentic Palestinian food at a very good price! Opening times vary, but be sure not to miss out!

It’s amazing how they care about chickpeas. They put them on water for hours with bit of soda. They blend them in super powerful food processor and tahini. Each falafel is hand made. Definitely this is the place I will go for falafel & humus...More

So the Flaffel is why people come here. It's great, as are the 6+ other spreads and various hummous you get. the price was I think 50 shekels/person for a massive amount of food. The place itself, has character, but it a bit beat up,...More
