I was recently in Israel and after a bit of convincing I got them comfortable with an excursion to a street side falafel place. One of the most important things with food is authenticity and that my friends does not correlate with price. Authenticity does correlate with passion. We set out to experience the best of middle east, well Israel, well Tel Aviv, well this street corner. The point is that street food is all about the moment, the weather things that take place around. It is the most multi sensory food experience. I am really happy I was stubborn as we had a great lunch and our host were happy. The place was buzzing with people all wanting to tone their Sharwarma them self. I had a crazy mix of Shawarma and falafel hence the crazy title.  What makes street food so amazing is the built in fear factor of getting a tummy ache, this adds to the sensory experience. No pain no gain. Thanks for showing the place  a great memento.

Fear factor only arises for me in certain countries, ie when people start telling you only to drink bottled water and not because the water tastes bad, but coz it might seriously damage your health. I would put israel def. not in that category. I heard rumours that hommus there is amazing! especially in one place in jerusalem.
