What’s Israeli-style falafel? It’s any way you freaking like it–mostly with tons of different salads (like eggplant salad or Israeli/Arab tomato-cucumber salad, not Caesar) and even French fries piled into the pita.

The place to go seems to be Falafel Palace, with fresh and well-seasoned falafel, and a huge range of salads/toppings (including baba ghanouj, roasted peppers, marinated mushrooms, various cheeses and the probably not-so-traditional guacamole).

Pita Pocket is Israeli, and you can get French fries, rice, and probably other stuff on your falafel, says jencounter, who also gives props to the amazing laffa.

Amer’s Falafel looks like it fits the bill too.

Israeli friends vouch for the mom-and-pop Habayit, says ddyouandme.
