Wanted Mediterranean for a change. My travels took me to Jaffa. Good thing too. Generous portions that are also tasty. I had a chicken swarma plate. A variety of condiments are available. Really good value. Ambience is more suited to take-out.

The food at Jaffa Cafe is really good. I'm familiar w Greek food made at home and this is delicious. I don't like one thing. Eating on paper plates and with plastic forks. Might bring my own service next time.
