Falafel to Go is also available at the entrance. Of course hot and fresh!!

I, the author, who adore falafel, am trying to find better falafel than Afteem in many places, but have never come across the one.

Even the local people say “Afteem makes the best falafel in Palestine. Ask them, this is true.

Palestinian falafel is made with mashed chickpeas and special spices. With hummus and bread, you could wish anything more!

About Afteem

Afteem is the first falafel restaurant in Bethlehem, founded in 1948 by the Salamehs came from Yaffa as refugees.

The restaurant was named after a son of the founder, Saliba.

Restaurant staffs are very nice, the inside is always kept clean. It is said that many VIPs stop at this restaurant when they visit Palestine.

Their kitchen is always busy. Even fruit juices are freshly made for each order.

It is always full of locals especially after Islam’s Friday worship or Christmas parades. Come earlier on Friday or when some event is taking place at Manger Square.

Of course, other plates such as hummus or fool mdammas are delicious, too. Homemade fresh lemonade is also a must-try!
