Shabbat Take-Out in J'salem
I seem to remember a thread about this previously, but I couldn't find it. Does anyone have any recommendations for take-out for Shabbat? We will be staying in Nachlaot so someplace in that general vicinity would be welcome.
If you want to be amazed...do not miss Marvad Haksamim on King George, as chai18 suggested. On Fridays, their restaurant gets turned into a buffet take out with a HUGE selection of items (you won't believe it until you see it), some a la carte, some by weight, nothing expensive at all, particularly compared to US take out food prices. Last time, we bought a stuffed onion filled with meat for about 6 or 8 shekel- it was not weighed, sold by the piece. It did not make it to Shabbos dinner- OMG yum. They also sell salads, challah, desserts for one stop shopping, but your main focus should be on the prepared hot food. Couscouses up the wazoo, meat, umpteen chicken varieties, veggies...you will be amazed and you will enjoy Shabbos immensely.
