Fodor's Review

Steps from the Old City, this East Jerusalem landmark has been in business for decades—a thank-you note from President Jimmy Carter proves it. Starters like the hummus or the eggplant spread are reliably executed. Traditional fare like stuffed carrots and onions, or musakhan chicken cooked in sumac and onions, show Palestinian home cooking at its finest. If owner Zouheir Izhiman is around, ask him to share his years of local lore.
