Fodor's Expert Review Abu Ghosh Restaurant

$$$ Abu Gosh Middle Eastern

Jawdat Ibrahim won the Illinois state lottery in 1991 and plowed his winnings back into his village, creating a local restaurant as well as a scholarship fund for Arab and Jewish students. Jawdat was the driving force behind Israel's Guinness World Record for the largest plate of hummus, served on a satellite dish; taste the hummus for yourself, or try the bean soup or the juicy meat skewers served with freshly cut colorful salads. Take in stunning village views from large windows or outdoor seating on the balcony. A sweetshop on the first floor offers coffee, tea, and freshly made baklava and other treats, including the syrupy sweet cheese-based desert, knafe.
