Falafel, hummus, babaganoush, Israeli salads and pita sandwiches are the specialties at this casual office-building basement shop. Lunches come with soup plus either a pita sandwich or platter with falafel, schnitzel, chicken or lamb.

The menu expands a bit at dinnertime, with additional options like lamb and beef kebabs, shakshuka (egg and vegetable casserole), matbucha (a spicy tomato and pepper cooked salad), basmati rice dishes and traditional Middle Eastern sweets.
