Before you ask me what Israeli food is, have a look at this menu. Da Falafel King’s sit-down restaurant is all about what owner Yanir Yosef calls “Israeli-style fast food”: spring-green falafel, roasted shawarma, garlicky fresh hummus and all the pita and side dishes that fill your table while you wait for your order to arrive. Who knew? I only found out when I popped in for a pic for We’re on it last month and tried to order takeout.
What’s shakshuka? I asked.
Yosef described it as a tomato-rich stew filled with chunky vegetables and finished off with eggs cracked open and cooked right in the stew.
