Gosh its been awhile

So the resturant blog has not been in line with the new diet (no blog posts but lost 4 kilo, so I think I am ahead int he game) but I am back and with new resutrants well sort of.

I have been frequenting a very interesting spot in Jerusalem, its not exactly a restaurant more of a soup kitchen. No I am not homeless and this is not a charity endeavor, although I venture to say it doesn't make too much profit. A man in Nachlaot decided to open his home twice a week (mondays and thursday) to hungry people looking for good healthy food. His name is Asher and his cuilinary delight are self entitled "Carpathian Mountian Food". A mixture of Macrobiotic, eastern european and middle eastern food that is served buffet and seated family syle. The food is simple but delicious and when you walk out you dont feel saturated with oil.

Last time I went I had brown rice with curried veggies, buckwheat panckes, freash veggie salad, homemade bread, root vegetable soup and yummy apple cake.

Ashers place is a great little place in the center of town to get a bite to eat and not feel like you put on a ton of wieght. Plus with it costing 20 seks a meal its the cheapest in town too. all around Ashers is great if you dont mind an informal and unassuming meal served with a smile

The biggest problem is I dont know his address. I know he lives on Gilboa street and i knwo the house my memory, but I will update in the future
