Israel: Does Anyone Know Of/Recall This Shish-Kebab Restaurant?

shimson | Jan 16, 2008 06:56 PM

This has been driving me nuts for the last several days and Google has not yielded any clues. So, I was last in Israel in the summer of 1994. Immediately, before I left, I ate at my (then) favorite restaurant. (I also ate there with some frequency when I lived in Israel in 1988-89 and ’92.) It was a shish-kebab (aka "shipudim") restaurant. As best as I can recall it was in Beit Eizor or Beit Ezra. (I believe it was at a junction, but I am not sure. It am sure that it was about 20 minutes or so outside of Tel-Aviv by Egged; likely to the South-East.) Anyway, it was mainly an outdoor restaurant. You went inside picked out a few shish-kebab and took them outside to several men with long, narrow barbeque grills. You could also purchase a dish or two of fries, some hummus, etc. and there were some communal tubs of various salads, pickles and stacks of pita. I want to say it was called “Ezra’s,” but I don’t think that is correct. Can anyone help? Does it still exist? Thanks, S
