I noticed that behind the counter was a tray of fresh pita topped with cheese, meat, or onion (they call them pies). I bought two of the cheese pies for my children for dinner that night. They were thrilled. Both pies were gone in a flash and they requested that I get more pies and the "puffy" pita.
So, when we had a pot luck at work, I decided to bring food from Jerusalem Bakery. I called and spoke to the owner, the woman I had met on the previous occasion. I gave her a price and she worked with me to figure out what I could get in meat and vegetarian options to please the group. I chose the hummus and pita, chicken schwarma and rice, beef Kaftka, and falafel.
Wow!! I was loved at that potluck!! The beef Kafta was amazing!!! It was garlicky and moist, and so popular that I had to hide some for the guest of honor. The schwarma was better than any I have ever had. It had a flavor that was completely original and it had a kick to it as well. The hummus was thick and flavorful but not to much as to over power the other parts of the meal. Of course I LOVE the pita and usually eat it alone and dip the chicken in the hummus instead.
Jerusalem Bakery is a great place to get food for yourself, your family or your office. They have everything. I am always a happy girl when I visit them!
