Old Jerusalem Restaurant Review

: Old Jerusalem is the kind of place people like to return to again and again, and much of the reason is that its Middle Eastern fare is so cheap. For starters, try the baba ghanouj, good for scooping with warm pita. Falafel, shwarma (slices of roast lamb and beef served gyros-style) and grape leaves stuffed with rice, spices and vegetables on Lebanese bread are old standbys that are done well. If you're feeling adventurous, awaken your taste buds with the liquid yogurt or some Arabic coffee. The restaurant is BYOB.
