Alongside seafood ceviche with white eggplant puree, Arabic salad and tomato gazpacho you'll find an oversized Jerusalem bagel topped with spiced lima bean messabaha (a fancier version of hummus) and calamari shakshuka with eggplant, poached egg, okra, spinach, chickpeas and tahini. The food here will set you back a pretty penny, but portion sizes are plentiful and there's an inventive Middle Eastern wine list to make you forget all about the bill.
