Having had a wonderful version recently in Jerusalem, I'm wondering where to find it in Manhattan. Please let me know of any recommendations and tell me how it's served (i.e. with pita, Israeli salad, etc.)

    Depending on which hashkacha you accept you can find good shaksuka in many Israeli type restaurants. Both hummus place and soom soom have good versions. Pita is usually included, Israeli salad may be a side order.

            Yes.. It's a fantastic cookbook. I've made several recipes, all winners. I served the shakshouka with arugula salad, zaatar pita and yogurt.

            Have not tried the Bon appetit recipe, but I like the addition of chickpeas.

          Haven't tried it but my friend loved the shakshuka at Grill 212 (80th b/w bway and amsterdam).

            Is it preferable to use a cast iron skillet and cook in oven as opposed to the stovetop?

              My grandma uses a regular skillet. She cooks the tomatoes on the stove, and finishes it with the eggs in the oven
