Around the year 30 A.D., Nathanael inquired “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?" Around the year 2010 B.C., Bay Area citizens questioned, "Can any good food come out of Fremont?" The answer is yes, on both counts, thanks to Ramzi and Zuhad of Falafel, Etc., both of whom are natives of Nazareth, Israel. Ramzi and his brothers would help out at his father's locally renowned falafel shop after school. Between the time the last school bell rang and the last of his homework was polished off, Ramzi practiced everything from preparing the namesake seasoned chickpea patties to treating guests with classic Middle Eastern hospitality. Now as an adult, his father's original shop is no longer, and Ramzi has uprooted from the Middle East to the East Bay. After a long career in the tech industry, he decided to follow in his father's footsteps and open a restaurant of his own, right here in Fremont.
