I am going to Israel in December to visit my son in yeshiva and I am looking for some recommendations for where to take him and his friends for the "traditional" mom-takes-all-of-his-friends-out-for-dinner meal.
Needs to be fairly inexpensive, large portions, enough room for all of us to sit together and chilled out enough that a noisy group of American gap year kids won't upset their regular customers.
Food doesn't need to be Chowhound quality. I am going to guess that we will be a group of 10-15 people.
Any location in the metro Jerusalem area that is easily accessible by bus.
