“avoid those tourist trap restaurant around and join the locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

visiting the old city of Jerusalem and its sacred sites don't miss that intimate hidden jewel.
my friend and I were on our way to the via dolorosa when we saw mothers standing in a queue with their children and buying falafel and hummus packed in boxes as a "take away" lunch. we decided to trust locals. the welcoming person who stood behind the stall invited us to enter the little restaurant. just 4 tables and all the vegetarian typical Arabic low-tech food is neatly prepared in front of the customer. try it and you will not regret. avoid those crowded tourist trap restaurants around, and join the locals for a tasty and... cheap experience.
