Best falafel in town is by far uzis on yeshayahu a block up from brisk every cab driver and bus driver stop there

While I didn't go running all over town on my last couple of visits, I do have to say that Uzi's was SIGNIFICANTLY better tasting than anything else I tried (maybe three other places).

Worth a try IMO.

Why can't they make good falafels in America? I will never understand it.
          And the pitas here? Eh.

Whenever I'm in Montreal I bring a suitcase back of the pitas made there. THOSE are comparable to Israeli Pitas.

In Yerushalayim I like the Falafel at Rav Shefa.

I also enjoy many of the CafeCafe locations for a nice milchig/parve meal.

Personally I don't find their falafel to be so great. I guess it's a matter of taste, so everyone will have a falafel place that he will prefer to go to...

CafeCafe rocks! They are located everywhere. I found one at some run down petrol station in the middle of nowhere.  Always good to grab something to eat, but I still wouldn't rely on the name for good food as every place is very different.
