“FIND ME A GOOD LAMB KEBAB, IN A PITA POCKET”
We all know how it feels to hang out for a month until you get it, yes?
Today is my lucky day, thanks to Ron Lev, my tour guide to the North of Israel for the past couple of days ashore – sharing Middle Eastern food in one of his favourite, non-descript, Arab family restaurants situated in a service station on the Acre to Haifa Highway. (I’m trusting, aren’t I?)
This extended family of 1948 Arab Moslems from Palestine now living in Israel are so hospitable and proud – happy to be running their own ‘Oriental Food’ (Middle Eastern) restaurant, and everything as clean as a whistle. (Only the men in the family are involved in the business.)
Mezze of 12 fresh salads, and the best felafel, precedes the succulent minced lamb kebab – charred to perfection on large skewers.
I haven’t enjoyed a meal like this since I can remember!
