Fodor's Expert Review Qabar Chicken

$ Bethlehem Middle Eastern Fodor's Choice

Just west of Bethlehem in Beit Jala, this fluorescent-lit hole-in-the-wall has perfected the art of grilled chicken over nearly 50 years in operation. The birds are split and grilled over charcoal, then served with creamy hummus, eggplant salad, and an unforgettable garlic sauce called mtawameh. Taxi drivers can take you here from Manger Square, and it's worth the trip.
