Waffle-Falafel in Israel – level 1

26-10-2018 07:00

In Israel, a restaurant is trying a new food idea. It is very popular. It has ideas from Israeli and Belgian foods.

The restaurant changes the food that it normally uses. It normally uses chickpeas and pita to make food that is like a sandwich. Now, it uses a Belgian waffle. The waffle is made out of falafel.

Half of a waffle with food inside costs about £6.30 or $8.17. People like the food. There is a long line in front of the restaurant.

Difficult words: chickpea (a pea that people use in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food), pita (a bread that you can open to put food inside), Belgian waffle (a large waffle made in a machine that has small squares), falafel (a food made from chickpeas and usually eaten in pita).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
