Artist's Description

Falafel is a fried ball or patty made from spiced fava beans and/or chickpeas. Falafel is very popular and common in Israel. Falafel is usually served in a pita bread wrap (i.e. sandwich), and the term “falafel” commonly refers to this sandwich by synecdoche; falafel in a pita is typical street food or fast food. Along with the falafel balls, which may be crushed onto the bread or added whole, various toppings are usually included. Falafel is now seen as a uniting, pan-Middle-Eastern dish. In recent years, immigration from the Middle East to Western countries has brought with it a broader availability of Middle Eastern cuisine, and the falafel sandwich has become a popular and iconic food within alternative fast food or slow food movements, and indeed has spread worldwide. (Wikipedia) The photo was taken on February 2, 2007 at “FALAFEL HA-ZKENIM” in Wadi Nisnas, Haifa (Israel), known to be the best in town.
