The originality of this place’s name goes back to the legendary generosity of the owner who offered a pita that the customer could fill as much as he wanted at the family run falafel business. As a result, Customers christened the shop, Halev Harachav, or “big heart”. Today, his kids have taken over, expanding and renovating, while maintaining a traditional, rustic décor in Jerusalem stone. The menu includes a wide choice of all-you-can-eat homemade Israeli salads, both cooked and uncooked, for 25 ILS per person. That way you can nibble or fill up, depending on your appetite, while waiting to order your meat. You are also served with hot lafas and zartar as soon as they are eaten. The meat is cooked over a closed or open wood burning fire, for a more smoky taste. The portions are large, honoring the memory of the patriarch and the meat is well cooked and served with simple sides (rice or potatoes). This is a good chipude, in a lively, bustling atmosphere with many waiters ready to replace the small salad plates as soon as they are empty, and lots of customers.
