Best Price Imaginable for a Filling Meal and It's Meat!

I'm a firm believer in eating good healthy meals. It sure helps me function. But I really can't afford to spend too much, so I'm Always looking for ways of eating well for as little as possible. I've also found that eating a filling healthy meal is a great way to keep your weight down. If you don't eat enough, you'll be hungry and want to nosh. 

I've made it a principle to bring a meal to work, so I don't have to buy anything, and I never buy myself snacks.

With my recent schedule of sleeping out in Jerusalem on Tuesday night, studying in Matan Wednesday morning and then working night shift that night, makes it hard to find the right filling and economic meals. I can't pack food (lunch and dinner) on Tuesday for Wednesday. I've blogged about the various things I've done on Wednesdays, like Two Meals for the Price of One!, Great Salad Deal in Jerusalem and Quiet Lunch Escape in the Center of Jerusalem.

Last week I tried something different. I bought a simple cottage cheese near the bus station which I ate for lunch, and then for dinner I ate near work. Actually, I ate at work, where I usually eat my food brought from home. Friends from work have been recommending the בורגר השקמה Burger Hashikma, which is the Rami Levi "fast food" meat place. You can get a variety of meat plus chumus, techina and salad in a pita for under ns20. Yes, that means a real meat meal/sandwich for the price or less than it costs to buy a tuna or cheese sandwich in Jerusalem!

I bought the Jerusalem Mixed Grill for all of ns16! It's the bargain of the century as far as I'm concerned. It was tasty, too. Service was friendly, and I have no complaints at all about it.

So, if you're in the area and need a meal, give it a try! I presume the other branches charge about the same.
