A friend picked me up Saturday night, whisked me out of downtown and took me to Jerusalem Market and Restaurant. It's on Summer between Mendenhall and Avon tucked away off the street next to Charlie's Meat Market. It's always felt like the Twilight Zone back there to me nevertheless it's there that you will find this small Middle Eastern market and restaurant.
It really is in the Middle East according to my Memphis map. Memphians, especially native Memphians, generally call anything east of their location "Out East". Hence the east-centric map, or would that be the Downtown/Midtown centric map?
Back to the topic, the food was good though we were the only people there. On the TV was some news program from Syria that we both decided would still have been boring even if we spoke the lauguage. But the hummus presentation was pretty:
The falafel and cracked green olives were good, as evidenced by the bite out of one of the falafel closest to me...
and my kefta kabob was nice (forgot what DTM had - some kind of chicken dish I think)
The little market had some good stuff too, lots of different kinds of olives, spices and teas to name a few items. It was a nice place overall and a fun field trip for me.
