We have been going to the Walnut Theater for years, and sometimes pass Hamifgash, which is on Sansom St, in back of the theater, on the way to restaurants on Chestnut Street. Yesterday we decided to stop in and try it out.
Well, the place is ordinary, but well kept. The food in the glass cases appeared good. The waitress was a genuine Israeli in appearance, but (and I say this with experience) more friendly.
We had the tabule appetizer, and my wife, who is a food maven, remarked that it was fresh and tasty. It was served with warm thick pita. She had the chicken breast pita, and I had the hamifgash platter, which was patties of chopped lamb with a salad and rice. The portions were quite ample. It was all delicious, and we each finished it all with gusto.
It's not fine dining, but it's fine. With plenty of time to get to the theater.
