The Best Falafel in Jerusalem
Reader's Choice Winner:
Uzi's (Downtown/Meah Shearim)
An overwhelming majority of our readers chose Uzi's Falafel as their top pick for delicious authentic Jerusalemite falafel. Their successful traditional homemade falafel recipe hasn't changed for decades. We recommend ordering a falafel with caramelized onions and all the fixings on a fresh laffah. Nestled behind Meah Shearim where Yirmiyahu Street meets Downtown Jerusalem, it's worth the slight detour to find this local treasure.
