If you’re a fan of falafel, Shlomo Falafel is worth stopping by. This place is located in the Bukharim quarter, a traditional ultra-orthodox neighborhood since 1946. It seems as if time stands still here: the walls are dotted with Hassidic Rabbi photos that look as if they have been untouched for years, while some guests look as though they’ve been frequenting the place for decades. The fresh and golden falafel is fried to order and has a crispy shell with a tender interior—just like a good Falafel should. This delight comes with one of the best pitas in Jerusalem, which is freshly baked from the neighboring Yemeni bakery (itself also worth a visit).
