Lunch at Abu Al-Abed

This Saturday we did something we hadn't done in a very long time. We joined some friends for lunch at Abu Al-Abed in Yaffo for, what we truly believe to be, the best authentic Arab restaurant in Tel Aviv. This place embodies everything we like about family-run Middle Eastern joints. It has the same decor and ambiance (do-it-yourself kitsch architecture) and the same order-eat-and go method, but their menu is much more extensive. In addition to the regular hummus/pita/salads trio, you can get yourself acquainted with some local Jaffa specialties and wonderful choice of grilled skewers. Things we like to order here are: fried shrimp, kebabs, siniya (a baked ground meat and tehini dish), cauliflower with lemon and garlic and kubbeh . Their salads and hummus are also excellent. It's well worth the long wait outside on a Saturday afternoon.
