Pinsteps. Majda, Kfar Rafa

Majda Restaurant is not just-food. It is a story. An eternal love story. The story of suffering, loyalty and devotion. An Arab boy named Yaakov worked at the Kiryat Ya'arim Hotel in the Jerusalem mountains. There he met Michal Burnes. She completed their duty in the IDF. Their mutual affection turned into love, and they were both ashamed. They knew that Jewish girls and Arab boys could not get married. The children's parents did not imagine that an Arab guy and a Jewish girl would be married. But they did. They grow up with their kids, live together in love, and open a home restaurant. Yaakov designed the place inspired by his wife, and Michal prepared simple and delicious food. The much-recommended dish is dumplings stuffed with minced lamb, a traditional Arab dish accompanied by a yoghurt and rice sauce, but Michal's kitchen is not overloaded with ingredients; there is no rice. The tase is in the simplicity of flavours and spices.
