Jerusalem is second to none when it comes to delicious street food, and the Holy City offers falafel, shawarma, hummus and sabich. Perhaps the week of open restaurants will be dominated by workshops on Israeli Mizrachi (Eastern) cuisine. If you are a fan of the festival, which is making its first visit to the Israeli capital, Jerusalem is the perfect place to visit one of the most popular restaurants.
Whether hummus, falafel, bourekas or knafeh, discover the popular street cuisine that gives Jerusalem its unique flavour and discover the best places to find it. When you take Sabs to his favourite place in Jerusalem, you eat an irresponsible amount of tahini. With all the delicious street food Jerusalem has to offer, it’s time to wash it all down with a little Knafesh.
One of the spice blends used here is actually called “Philadelphia spices,” and this fact inspired Sabs, who vowed to incorporate the paprika-garlicherb mixture into his next meal. As the kitchen is open to both the restaurant and the people on the street, Jerusalem’s spice mix is blended and used to liven up grilled chicken. You can still eat a takeout flavour with your favourite grilled meat, but if you don’t like to eat the inside of your chicken, you can order an veggie option. If the offal is a dealbreaker (it is for me!), then the veggie options are the only dish.
If you love grilled or roasted meat, you should try the Shawarma Schnitzel, which is often served side by side in Jerusalem restaurants. Served in a similar way to shallots, it is a dish of European origin, typically breaded chicken breast, but richly seasoned just like the original. Easy-to-find chicken breasts and thighs are used, as well as a variety of other meats such as beef, lamb and pork.
So heat the oil in a large frying pan, fry the chicken livers on all sides, then turn off the heat and let them cook and caramelise the onions. Liver is sold in many different flavours, such as sweet, savoury, spicy and spicy, but you can usually make a quick grilled chicken heart and liver and spleen, which is served with flavonoids and tahini, and bam you got yourself a Jerusalem mixed grill.
Israeli salad, which is apparently a regional staple, and has something called “sabich” (or “Sabich,” as one local favourite calls it). If you are inspired by Iraqi and Jewish cuisine, you should look no further than the Sabich. Falafel is served in the Holy City by family-run businesses, but there is no doubt that it is a staple Middle Eastern food that was brought to Israel in the 19th century. It is also available in most bakeries and supermarkets in Jerusalem, although it has been baked and baked in Israel for centuries and was imported from Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and other parts of Africa, as well as the United States and Europe.
The hummus, already sensational, is even crazier, and the mouth – the watery falafel balls with their crispy texture made every bite a delight.
