Healthy Mediterranean Food and Traditional Entertainment at Haritna’s Restaurant

Haritna Restaurant offers authentic Mediterranean food at a price that is affordable for individuals and families. From their homemade bread to their charbroiled chicken you will find their food tantalizing and full of flavor. Listen to the live music, watch the belly dancers, have a hookah on the covered deck, and eat till your hearts full in this traditional Palestinian environment.

Haritna’s is a cross between a lounge and a restaurant. One can order tea and play chess with others or eat a full course meal. Perhaps you will be more interested in having a drink and hookah on the patio. The restaurant is affordable to most people and offers a relaxed environment without the need of the formalities of a suit and tie. 

According to Mayo clinic traditional Mediterranean diet is healthy, reduces risks of heart disease, incidents of cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s (1). An analysis of 1.5 million people who ate the Mediterranean diet reaped better health and lower risks of disease. The use of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and olive oil was low in carbohydrates and bad fats.

Traditional Palestinian food incorporates lentils, rice, meat and fish. The type of food offered ranges from where it originated. Kibbee and various charbroiled meats are most common dishes.  You may want to try the Middle Eastern salad called Tabbouleh. The offerings fit within the family of Mediterranean.
