Experience the Authentic Flavors of Jerusalem with Hilana Falafel



Hilana Falafel was started by Manal Hilana in 2016. Hilana Falafel provides authentic "Jerusalem style" falafel sandwiches using fresh/local ingredients from the Washington, DC region. When Manal moved from Palestine to the United States, she found it difficult to balance working and being a mom. In an effort to do something that she loved also provided flexibility to her schedule, she began serving her falafel at the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market. After receiving amazing reviews, she expanded to the White House market and has since been featured in the Washington Post, Washingtonian Magazine and continues to be highly rated on every online rating platform.

Best falafel in DC -- authentic and Palestinian owned. Every time I go to the farmers market I tell myself I'll try something new... and then I come back here instead.

I've had a thousand unmemorable falafel wraps from a thousand places. This is the best one I've ever had in my entire life. Other falafel sandwiches should be embarrassed. I started writing this review in front of the booth before I even left, with my second wrap of the night in hand. I have no idea how much the sandwiches cost and I don't care. Every ingredient is high quality and well balanced. Every bite is tasty with just the right amount of sauce and toppings. The cucumber is somehow a game changer. Didn't expect to be losing my mind over a falafel wrap on a Saturday night, but I'm happy to be here.

The best falafel in Mt Pleasant. Eating here has become a staple of my Saturdays. It’s a humble place with amazing food and staff

This falafel is the best. I get a wrap with the works almost every morning for breakfast. Manal is warm and welcoming, the food is great, and they're here rain or shine, every Saturday. Come get some!
