Our Lunch Hangout on the Mount of Olives

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We went to this lunch spot on our first and last days in Jerusalem as well as one day in between. Located on the Mount of Olives, it is next to a butcher shop that supplied our fresh meat ingredients. On Fridays, the menu is falafel, chicken, or meat (lamb) in a pita. On other days, the selection includes shawarma. The beverage selection included Fanta Orange (a favorite in our group), Coke Zero, diet Coke, and fruit drinks. Since we were there on two Fridays, we saw people passing by as they left noon prayers at a nearby mosque.
