Citysearch Editorial Review – It's easy to find fast, cheap, delicious food in the Mission, but it's usually of the Mexican variety. The Middle Eastern fare served up at Old Jerusalem offers a different, though equally easy on the wallet, version. The Mousakhan is the all-star, an oven-roasted half chicken on flat bread with sweet onions and nearly big enough for two. The Falafel sandwich is a tasty vegan dish--ask for the "stuffed Falafel," for a kick of pine nuts and sumac. The place feels like a Lebanese taqueria, with its plastic-wrapped table clothes and blaring Arabic music, and desert oasis scene in trompe l'oeil wraps walls; it's a little campy, but a touch that shows the owners care. Kitsch aside, this place, unlikely as it may seem, is said to be the closest you can find to an authentic Jerusalem eatery this side of Bethlehem.
Good Mediterranean food – Old Jerusalem has great falafel, hummus, salads and kebobs. The atmosphere is casual and the prices are relatively cheap. Highly recommended.
one of my favorites – This place is just one of the best dinner/Lunch places in SF.
Real middle eastern food and for a reasonable price !
Editorial Review – This Mission spot serves fresh, authentic Middle Eastern food for fair prices.
Oustanding! Best Middle Eastern food I've had in the Bay Area by a long way – Everything is super-fresh, plus lots of dishes on the menu you rarely see outside the Middle East (e.g. falafel stuffed with fried onions). Fantastic hummus (the true basic test of any Middle Eastern restaurant), nice thick pita (instead of the cheap thin ones you get everywhere else in SF or the dried out lavash they use).
I hestitate to recommend this place, as it's hardly known and I'd hate it to change of become overrun. But others in SF deserve to taste what good Arabic food really tastes like. And the owners deserve credit.
