Dining out: al-Falaha Restaurant in Ein Areek

5 Jun

Another special place to eat outside of the “big city” of Ramallah is al-Falaha Restaurant. It is a traditional place specializing in one meal — musakhan. Musakhan is a Palestinian dish featuring roast chicken.

It is placed on hearty flatbread with caramelized onions and lots of red sumac, a lemon-flavored grated spice.

Part of what makes al-Falaha worth the trip is the landscape it is situated in. Located in the village of Ein Areek, the restaurant is nestled between the road and terraces of olive trees and wildflowers.

Though it does get blazingly hot in the peak of summer, ceiling fans and Palestinian-made Taybeh beers served in frosted mugs help moderate the heat.
