The Vegetarian Shawarma

Posted on 02 / 03 / 2013

It was a refreshing change to have a Vegetarian /Vegan choice in Haifa. Being Vegetarian, we were delighted at the opportunity to taste a Shawarma. The cafe is placed in the centre of the "Shawarma" area of downtown Haifa. Nicely decorated, clean, and with a kitchen that is seen from the eating area. The staff were welcoming and attentive. We felt the food was fresh, nicely cooked ( not over oily) and very tasty. To be recommended for Veggie eaters like ourselves or anyone who wants a healthy eating place. Prices very reasonable.

That place is truly the best choice concerning the size of the portions (they're huuuge!!), taste, quality and price! their shawarma would be enough for two, it includes a lot of seitan, vegetables and costs about 25 shqalim. I'm a bit worried about the quantity of bread in their food, but they have a whole weat baguette. Also they have pizza, schnitzel, hamburger and cheeseburger and that's not all... The staff is the best we've met in Israel. The place it occupies is really very small, but there're not many visitors either. They listen hardcore:)
I recommend everyone to visit it at least once, especially if you need a lot of vegan food for a low price.
The brownies are too sweet but they cost 7 for 2 - that's very small price. ok, the last problem is they don't have tea at all (which is common to Israel), but their coffee is ok.

Pros: BIG portions, pleasant staff, very cheap!
Cons: music a bit loud, no sofas, too much bread
