Please introduce yourself:

A young man, dreaming of a better future.

My city: 

Jericho, Palestine.

My favorite place to eat in Jericho:

Green Valley Restaurant, Al Rawda Restaurant, Al-Sham Bakery & Restaurant and Abu Omar Restaurant (Traditional Food).

A typical dish of Jericho: 


Musakhan is usually made using ‘Taboon Bread’, a thick and bubbled bread that peasants used to prepare at home.

The bread is supposed to be simple to prepare using the ‘Traditional Oven’ available at most houses back in the day. They also used to prepare it using their own home-raised chickens that used to run around their front yard.
