The Big Felafel

Beautiful Sufganiyot

We may not have Dunkin Donuts here in Israel, so Chanukah time and Roladin bakery’s sufganiyot (Israeli version of donuts)  are the closest we can get. Most sufganiyot could be confused with a roll – a big round piece of cakey bread, with a dot of filling which could fall off if you’re not careful. However,  I think there are a few bakeries that really put in the extra effort (read: filling)

  • Cafe Ne’eman – King George St. I recommend the white chocolate
  • Marzipan Bakery – Mahane Yehuda Market & Rahel Imenu St., Jerusalem
  • Roladin – Mamilla Mall [featured below]

Is it wrong to frame this picture and hang it over my couch? I think it’s beautiful.  I recommend the chocolate chocolate flavor. Pure heaven.  I think I’m gonna have to keep going back until I’ve tried every flavor.


Flavors include macchiato, halva, pistachio, vodka melon, banana, with all sorts of goodies sprinkled and added on top. For more sufganiya goodness, read Haaretz’s writeup.

    Rebecca, why does it seem that Miriam, Tzion and I are the only ones in the city who didn’t enjoy Roladin? Well, I’m glad I had a part in your Roladin experience and that you enjoyed them despite my disclaimer. 🙂

      Deena, It’s because you guys are the only ones who prefer the jelly to the chocolate.
