Top choice fusion

in Nazareth

In a 200-year-old Ottoman-era mansion, this atmospheric restaurant – the songs of the legendary Egyptian singer Umm Kulthum are on high rotation – serves traditional Nazarene recipes with a Mediterranean twist. Specialities include seasonal dishes made with okra (bamya) and wild thistle (akub), and fresh artichoke hearts filled with chopped beef, almonds and pine nuts.

Owner Daher Zeidani encourages guests to share the generous portions to taste different dishes. It has a bar.
