Disagree.
Without french fries and soda, I need 3 slices usually...

 I didn't say "everyone", did I? ;)

-1

 And for quite a few people (despite the fact that they would not admit it), two slices is bordering on achilah gassa as it is

Food stops on my upcoming trip.

Felafel:
Felafel Siya (on bar ilan)
Shalom Felafel (on Betzalel)
Miros (near the Mir)
Felafel Hateimani (on Yoel, Bukharian Shuk) excellent melawach falafel

Pizza:
Big Apple

Dairy:
Agass Vtapuach (Kikar Safra) groupon
Cafe Rimon
Sam Bagels (for my wife) (Ben Yehuda)

Meat:
Papigios (Talpiot) probably the Brazilian table


Schwarma:
Halo Teiman ( Paz station Kneisa Lair)
Maoz (King George across from Lev Yerushalayim)

Drinks, Dessert, and Pastries:
Mitz Pri for iced coffee (Geulah)
Aldo for ice cream (Yaffo)
Katzefet (froyo)for ice cream (Ben Yehuda)
Marzipan chocolate rugalech (Old City and Shuk)

These are all places I have been to many times. Is there anything here that's not around anymore, no longer Kosher, or no good anymore?

Where do I need to add to my list if options?

Thankfully the garlic chicken and Modern came around.

The garlic chicken your referring to are tempura?  In a basket like the potatoes?
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

Paran Waffle Bar update: service still stinks.

As in, the waiter and waitress who helped us were nice and polite, and it didn't take a half-hour for a milkshake like last time, but they consistently "forgot" stuff. For example, I asked for tomato sauce on the side FOUR SEPARATE TIMES, and didn't get it at all in the end - not even when they packed our leftovers to go. (I finally just gave up on it.)

Food wasn't too bad, though my ravioli was a bit undercooked. Hot chocolate left much to be desired, but my wife's cappuccino was okay.

And the owner sent us free dessert, so that was nice. :D

I don't like having to ask for something three or four times. That hasn't been my experience in many other places.
