cheap vegetarian food in Jerusalem???
So I am in Jerusalem for 6 weeks and while I adore the falafel here, I'm really struggling to find other types of restaurants to frequent while I'm here. I'm curious to see if anyone has any advice on where to go that is cheap (I'm a student here on an unpaid internship so I can't afford nor desire any fancy stuff), vegetarian (dairy and eggs are fine but no meat, fish, or poultry), and near Bezalel street. I'm having a hard time mainly because I don't speak or read or understand any Hebrew so can't read the signs outside to determine what there is inside and I am always concerned I will get in and sit down and realize there is nothing vegetarian for me to eat and have the embarrassment of having to leave. I really would appreciate any advice anyone has. I'm not totally familiar with the city yet but I think I have Bezalel, Hillel, and Aggripas down pat so far :) . Thanks in advance! (btw yes I know about the Village Green :))
If you can get someone to show you how to determine whether a kosher restaurant is "Chalavi"--dairy or "Bisari"--Meat (perhaps by showing you the Hebrew letters for the words--each word is only four letters, and I imagine anyone could memorize what each word looks like, even if you don't read Hebrew), you could stick to kosher Chalavi places and at least you'd know that there wouldn't be any meat or poultry. These places might still have fish, but you would just not order it. You certainly wouldn't have to leave, embarrassed.
If this helps--if I recall correctly, the certificate of the chalavi/dairy places is blue and the certificate of the bisari/meat places is red, and they're usually displayed prominently outside the place, so you don't have to go in to see them.
