Israeli diners can soon have a ball at the country’s 160 McDonald’s restaurants. In fact they can have three for 10 shekels, as the franchise begins offering “McFalafel” alongside the Big Mac and other offerings.
Starting this week, the fried-chickpea sandwich will appear at all of the company’s restaurants in Israel, with a side of tahina and chopped vegetables, according to YNet.
Only 36 of the fast food chain’s locations are kosher, but none serve bacon, and many don’t sell cheeseburgers, since it has proved unpopular with the country’s majority Jewish population. The prolific chain already offers a McKebab and McSchwarma to its Israeli consumers.
