I’m not a big fan of falafel, but people here love it. Two days ago I met a young girl who is part of an interesting program named “אחי ישראלי” (or in translation to English: “My Brother is Israeli”). I can tell a lot of interesting stories about our meeting, which took place thanks to CoachSurfing, but today I would like to concentrate on the falafel side of the story.
The truth is, we didn’t talk a lot about falafel. We just talked a bit about my website, Backpack Israel, amongst other things, and then she said that I should recommend a specific falafel place in Tel Aviv, located on King George Street. “They sell the greatest falafel I’ve ever tasted, and it’s only 6 shekels for a meal!” she said. But when I looked on the Internet for a falafel place on that street, I found a lot of results.
“There’s no way I’m going to find your falafel place!” I said.
She said she’ll search for it for me and after a few minutes she found the place. “Falafel Ratzon,” she said, “That’s the one.”
Then she took a peice of tissue paper and wrote the details down on it:
King George 17
So if you want to taste one of the best falafels in Tel Aviv, you should make your way to Ratzon’s. 6 Shekels is without a doubt a superb price! Enjoy.
Opening Hours: Sundays to Thursdays from 10:00 to 20:00, Fridays from 10:00 to 15:00.
