Abu Yusuf in Haifa, Haifa Bay, Israel | Restaurant
Abu YusufHaifa, The sign is in Hebrew, English, and Arabic, and this award-winning Restaurant has been loved by speakers of all three languages for decades. Newly redecorated but still basically no-frills, Abu Yusuf's food tends toward the Lebanese, featuring kubbeh, hummus with meat, grilled heart (delicious!), and roast chicken. One trip to the wonderful salad bar of 20 Middle Eastern dishes comes with a main course, or you can order the salad bar alone and have a fine meal with fresh pita bread and a shot ("jot") of anise-flavored arak brandy. Abu Yusuf offers fresh fish and grilled lamb dishes. Very good value.
