Oh, the shame. I’ve been scooped. Worse yet, by my friend Gloria who’s come down from Santa Rosa for a visit and led me to a wonderful little restaurant on the edge of my stomping grounds whose existence had not shown up on my radar. So i’ve been scooped by a foreigner! Aieeeeee.
The restaurant is Old Jerusalem, located on Mission Street just north of 26th Street. We had lunch there yesterday: superb Arabian coffee, fine baba ghannoush, tender and flavorful lamb shish kababs, pillowy pita, and the best hummus i ever ate. Period. I’m going back to work my way through their menu, especially since they’re also open for lunch.
What a find!
And since i’m not taking food pics now, here’s a shot of an interesting palm treatment on a building by China Basin.
