A Mexican Fiesta in the Heart of Jerusalem

Hope is not lost. I just discovered something new on the Jerusalem culinary landscape: Yaacov Yehuda Stanley, a Breslover chef from Colorado trained at the Jerusalem School of Kosher Culinary Arts, otherwise known as the man behind "Jerusalem Taco."
Apparently he's been trying to make a name for himself over the last few months as a Mexican-Kosher caterer. Luckily I don't have to hire him as a caterer to see whether his Mexican fare could break the dearth-of-decent-Mexican-food curse that plagues the otherwise holy land. Just 2 days from now he's holding a big public event in the Nachlaot neighborhood of Jerusalem: the Mexican Fiesta Night.

He'll be preparing beef burritos, roasted chicken tacos, "phatty" veggie burritos, and churros. Some microbrewery guys will also be selling home-brewed beer and margaritas. If you want to check it out head over to 39 Betzalel Street between 6 and 10pm on Monday. Also take a look at the facebook event for more info.
