Holy Land Restaurant & Ici, Berkeley report w/ pics

We came here for dinner Sun 6/24/07. It's a small place that has waiter service & probably take-out.

We got:
Beef shishlik-chunks of beef in a pita pocket which includes tomato, cucumber & home-made cabbage $6.35-I think the pita is homemade and pretty good, meat & other stuff average.

hubby got Shish Kabob dinner $15.95-2 skewers, 1 w/ ground beef, other with beef chunks. Dinner starts are 4pm and includes soup & salad plus a choice of rice, french fries, or grilled potatoes. He got the Chicken soup (didn't like the crunchy yellow bits on top) w/ Matza ball (just one) & he picked the grilled potatoes. Soup is good and so is the ground beef. Grilled potatoes very bland. Salad was decent.

eggplant salad -babaganoush $4.95-pretty good, enjoyed it w/ 1 pita bread -2 extra homemade pitas (60c each) & the excellent green spicy sauce.

You must try the Fresh home-made lemonade w/ mint $2.25-it's really good, and everyone else seems to get it too.

They take Credit Cards, and there is one unisex bathroom that was decent up in the front.

There was a line because it was a warm day, plus David Lebovitz, author of "The Perfect Scoop" was there for a book signing.

I got a single scoop on a homemade cone. $3.5 for single scoop & .50 for cone. Total $4.25.

I picked Apricot on the top and Peanut Butter Chocolate Cookie on the bottom. Cone is really delicious and has a gooey chocolate in the base. I liked both flavors, friend loved the Apricot. Why does the ice-cream on the bottom melt so fast. Best to get it in a cup w/ the cone inverted.
