You could also go to Itzik HaGadol for fabulous salatim and meat aplenty. Check out the tripadivsor reviews tripadvisor.ca/Restaurant_Review-g293984-d15…

Abu Hasan is open for lunch only. Haj Kahil at the Clock Tower square has two places. One is a restaurant (very good). The other one called Haj Kahil Express (If I remember well) is across the street and has good hummus among other items http://hajkahil.co.il/index.php/home

I second Shoshi's recommendation for Haj Kahil restaurant at Clock Tower square. I dined there regularly and the food is exquisite and the service extremely attentive.

Fridays and Saturdays gets very busy very quickly though.

And I "third" that recommendation! Shoshi and her husband took me there for dinner, and it was FANTASTIC! I plan on taking Brett there in May -- great place.

The old man and the sea in Jaffa Port is a great place to eat.
