Vegging out in Jerusalem

by ben May 20 2008


Jerusalem might have a delicious root named after it, but the city is also the namesake for a griddled chicken innards dish.

World Vegetarian Week, which started yesterday, is certainly a much bigger deal in other cities, where restaurants jump on the activism bandwagon, but here in Jerusalem, where green living is on the rise, there are still plenty of options for vegetarian dining, including local favorites Te'enim and the Village Green - that is, should one choose to go that way.

Beyond places that market themselves as strictly vegetarian, our city is also loaded with a cornucopia of options for meatless dining, thanks to the popularity of kosher certification, which dictates that if you serve dairy, dead flesh in the kitchen is a nischt-nischt.
