Satisfy Midday Hunger with Mediterranean Classics from Falafal to Gyros

With the arrival of warmer weather and the imminent arrival of summer in The Holy City, it’s time to check out the coolest, breeziest and most flavorful lunch spots. Tabbuli, situated on the edge of the harbor, catches cool breezes and serves some truly outstanding Mediterranean fare. On weekdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., lunch is just as delicious, but extra gently priced for added appeal.

Monday is American burger day, served with cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and a pickle. Tuesday is gyro day, served with shaved gyro meat, fresh lettuce, tomato, caramelized onions, and a generous dollop of creamy, cool Tzatziki on a soft, fresh pita pocket. On Wednesday, Tabbuli guests can sample a hummus trio including classic tahini and chickpea hummus, roasted red pepper hummus, and pesto hummus with a small Jerusalem salad. Thursday’s special is the chicken Lula sandwich, stacked with two marinated and grilled chicken patties, Tzatziki, feta, tomatoes, bacon, and red onion. Wrap up the week on Friday with falafel pitas or falafel appetizers. All of Tabbuli’s lunch specials are $5 and served, dine-in only, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
