Jerusalem Central Bus Station
I wish I had more information to offer (no name of the place, no pic, but I’m tryin’ here!)
On Thursday 7/27, all 1,500 Onward Israel participants came together at Jerusalem Convention Center for a career and networking day of aspiration, inspiration, and action. It was super inspiring and fantastic, and since it was an all day event, they fed us. Even though my madricha told them about how I can’t have oil, they forgot to make anything without oil because of how many people there were. So many vegan options, but I knew I’d get super sick if I ate anything. At first, I was pretty sad, since the food looked awesome, but when she told me she would take me to the Central Bus Station to get food, the mood definitely picked up as I was sure I would find hummus.
She didn’t think we’d find it there, but I said, let’s just take a look (knowing if I couldn’t get hummus, I probably would be drinking a smoothie which would not sustain me for the day). On the second floor to our right, we found a schwarma place which had hummus! And, their hummus had no oil in it! She told me it was likely cold and not fresh, but I figured, something is better than nothing.
The cherry on top- I was thrilled to find out it was fresh AND warm. SOOOOO good! If you’re ever in Jerusalem and need a quick bite (and don’t have time to go to one of the many amazing restaurants in the city) hit it up! There was chickpeas on top too, and warm pitas came with it of course.
I didn’t take a picture because I didn’t have my camera, so here’s a pic of the Central Bus Station.
