Traditional East European home-style restaurants are hard to find in Jerusalem, but this neighborhood take-away place, with a few tables on the side, fits the bill. Not to be confused with a New York–style deli, Heimische Essen doesn’t do pastrami. Instead, it specializes in matzo ball soup, baked chicken, Sabbath cholent (casserole), potato kugel, gefilte fish, and other home-cooking classics. And there are days when an old-fashioned, nourishing meal of a bowl of soothing chicken soup can be a godsend. Luncheon specials drop the price for that meal; the take-away option can be useful on Friday before Shabbat.
