Wow, who knew stuffing a falafel would taste SO good?! I loved the filling they use – it has so much flavor and it keeps the inside nice and moist. These fried balls are pretty big so one was enough for me to snack on with my shawerma.

Shawerma sandwich - Old Jerusalem
Wow, this was really good! I loved all the flavors and the pickles were actually a really great addition. It added a great tartness that I wasn’t expecting in a shawerma sandwich. It was super sauce which I love even though it gets messy eating. Noms!
