This hole in the wall has been handing out my A-rab chicken fix for years. Great flavors, funny and efficient service, good quality ingredients; all at a very reasonable price.
Big portions too!

Counter seating for five, this little hole in the wall makes the best shawerma in town. Chicken on Tuesdays and Fridays, lamb the rest of the time. Falafel sandwich rollups, house plate with hummus and baba ghanoush, falafel dolma, tabouleh, pita, mmmmmm. Don't feel awful, eat a falafel!

We have been going to this little eatery for over 20 years. You can see the cooks frying up the flafels right in the window as you pass by.

Many customers take the food out as there are a few chairs inside and a two tables on the sidewalk. We almost always get the Flafel Deluxe or the Chicken Shawarma (Tuesday & Friday only other days is lamb). Food is always good and fast. Service is friendly. This is San Francisco fast food. Good quality, tasty and good for you!

Stop here on your way to check out Mission Delores (16th & Delores) and eat your Flafel in Delores Park on the hill at 19th and Delores with the City of San Francisco at your feet. Or if you have many hours between flights at SFO jump on the BART to 16th St Mission and walk one block west to Truly Med.

I found this restaurant while doing a search for restaurants and the rating on this restaurant encouraged us to go try it. We rode the bus to come here and I must say that it was a long ride followed by a long walk. However, the food was very yummy, fresh and "truly" delicious. We ordered the combo plate which was very sufficient for two people. The falafel was the very best I've had in a very long time. The hummus and Baba Ghanouj were very authentic and flavorful. The quantity of the food is a lot for one person and therefore I recommend sharing the combo plate. The quality of the food is excellent and priced very reasonably. I definitely recommend this restaurant and I'm most definitely going back for more.
