We both live in Israel. He comes from
Buenos Aires (the city itself); I'm from a small
town in the U.S.A.. (How small? Let's just say that I lived
a 10 -15 minute walk from the woods, and the creek
flowed behind the houses across the street from me.)

Sounds like the felafel I prepare for my family on special
(I add hot red-pepper powder and extra cumin to the
spiced chickpea flour before adding water, shaping it
into balls and deep-frying them. Then, into the pita bread
along with these, I stuff deep-fried vegetables, especially
sliced eggplant and onion, french fries (chips, in British
English) cut from both white potatoes and from
orange sweet potatoes; not to forget the hot green peppers,
sliced pickled and fresh vegetables. My kids then like to
pour t'china sauce (made from sesame seeds) over the whole thing!
[Not me! I know my limits! ;-) ] )
It goes down real nice. But after a while ... :-D
