This little hidden away restaurant was a tad difficult to find, but we're certainly glad we did. Jerusalem Grill is located at 223 Turner McCall Boulevard, Rome.
We received a very friendly greeting and welcome when entering. A very clean atmosphere was also a big plus. To order there are large photos of the different dishes with prices listed alongside. There's also take out menus available for a more extended selection.
We started with a small order of hummus. The pita bread was served warm and was very tender and doughy. The hummus had a very fresh flavor and the oil was very light and slightly lemony. We wished we had ordered a large serving.
Considering the food is prepared to order, we were pleasantly surprised to receive our entrees almost immediately after completing our hummus.
I could not pass up an opportunity to order the Falafel Platter. A generous serving which was perfectly cooked and served with home made Tzaziki Sauce.
Serve on top of yellow rice with additional pita bread on the side. The salad was extremely fresh and cold and lightly dressed with a lemon/olive oil dressing.
Harold chose the Kofka Kebab Platter for a sampling of chicken, stead and lamb served with grilled vegetables over rice and with the same amazing salad.
He enjoyed the chicken portion, raved non-stop over the lamb, but wished the steak had not been cooked quite as long. It was a tad tough.
We will definitely stop in again while traveling through Rome. The menu includes gyros, many other Mediterranean dishes along with American selections for those in your dining party who may not want to venture into Middle Eastern fare.
