Motek is a Downtown Israeli restaurant. We’ve tried their hummus tehina, Jerusalem grilled cheese, and the arayes burger, and we loved just about every bite. The hummus was perfect and the Jerusalem bagel grilled cheese - how could that be bad? Our favorite thing, though, is the arayes burger, which comes with four soft little pitas stuffed with beef and then grilled. Next time, we’ll be checking out the shakshuka and crispy chicken schnitzel plate. The indoor restaurant is also BYOB with no corkage fee right now.
