Lonely Planet review

A 400-year-old building and former workshop, Amigo Emil has been chiselled down to the bare stone foundations and decorated with pictures of old Jerusalem. There are some nice appetisers, including a mezze of goat’s cheese, tabbouleh, aubergine and hummus. A Jerusalem plate (40NIS) gets you all of these. The house speciality is musakhan, a dish of spiced chicken and onions stuffed into Bedouin bread (58NIS), or if you prefer red meat, try the qidreh, lamb with rice and chickpeas (80NIS).
