$$ Bethlehem Middle Eastern Fodor's Choice

Filmmaker Mazen Saadeh learned organic farming techniques in Oregon and returned to his native West Bank to cook what he grows on the rocky terraces outside Bethlehem. Sit at a table, order rabbit cooked in a zarb, or underground oven, wash it down with freshly distilled arak liquor or red wine made on-site, and gaze at olive trees that have been growing here for centuries. To get here, go to the DCO checkpoint in Beit Jala and call Mazen for precise directions. The site is in Area C, meaning it is open to Israeli cars and taxis.
