Waffle-Falafel in Israel – level 3

26-10-2018 07:00

Israel has a food craze that is a cross-cultural concoction: a restaurant in the city of Rishon Lezion changed the regular chickpeas and pita to a Belgian waffle.

A cook at the restaurant said that the food is similar because the waffle is made from falafel but different because no oil or frying is involved.

Half of a waffle with fillings like tahini and vegetables costs about £6.30 or $8.17. There was a long line on the fifth day of the restaurant being open.

Difficult words: craze (something very popular), concoction (mixture), chickpea (a round yellowish edible seed), tahini (a sesame paste that people use in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food).
