          I think we had humus sabiche and chumus elite. both were good. we had shnitzel. very yummy, but we thought the portion was a bit too small. the beet salad--good. jerusalem grill--good. i had the fricasee for lunch another day. very authentic israeli, good. didn't have dessert. oh and the pita was quite good too.

            Hummus sabich. Hands down my favorite.

            Some of the best hummus I have ever had anywhere. It actually tastes like chickpeas, as opposed to just garlic or lemon.

            Husband and I went Erev Pesach. This review was spot-on. Absolutely incredible, inspired food. We'll be back, soon.

              Just got back. My 11 year old said: "I can't take how good this is." He had the Dube Zone Burger with Facon, grilled onions and garlic aioli. We also had the grilled salmon on a bed of couscous and roasted squash and the Pargiot. I will have to vote for the Pargiot as being the tastiest dish of the night. And... of course, the Hummous. Yum. Polite service from the waiter and the owner. Outdoor dining too. It was busy, but not overcrowded. Over half the patrons did not appear to be kosher diners. Looking forward to the next time.
