I actually just told him about it a few days ago. And he probably wouldn't have told you about it even had he known. V'Hamayvin...

three very important things to know about halo taiman 1. The bnei brak branch is better than the jerusalem one. 2.For a extra shekel they will add for you 3 pieces of liver in the shawarma it makes it into the craziest shawarma out there. 3. If you willing to try something crazy there is a yellow sauce in the salad bar on the side called amba it is a Indian sauce made out of mango and Kari that sauce takes their shawarma to a whole new level its worth trying

What's the hashgacha of Ziyon Hagadol?
Does the 25 shek only cover all you can eat of dips and pita? What is the price range of meat dishes?

Amba is very common in Israel (i.e. falafel miro). But I was never tempted to try it. Maybe next time
