The spaghettis

.
Jerusalem turned on its head!
Or maybe it's the "celestial Jerusalem" hanging in the sky?
.
The half dome above the door of a restaurant creates a fun reflection of the Old City wall between Kikar Tsahal and the Jaffa Gate for James' "Weekend Reflections."
.
Its name is "the spaghettis."
The Hebrew says Mehadrin chalavi, meaning it is strictly kosher and serves only dairy food and no meat.

The reflection of the first photo makes a great picture. As I am a vegetarian, I'm sure I would like to eat there.

I like the dome capturing the buildings. I like my meat.

Dina: You landed the #1 spot on weekend reflection. You are #1 in many of our hearts with your great shots that really showcase one of the cradles of religion. Love the thought of kosher spagettis!

Well spotted. Great photo.

All the best, Boonie

VP said...

'Spaghetti' is already plural, so I can't see the use of the last 's'. It's almost like chips, you rarely get only one!
OK, we do much worse with English names...

Pat Tillett said...

The combination of the reflections and the angles make this a great photo! Thanks...

spacedlaw said...

I suppose it could be equally kosher and serve only meat? The restaurants in Rome's ghetto do that.

Dina said...

Hi everyone, so glad y'all are enjoying this! The guard at the door looked at me funny when I was taking the pictures.

Answers:
VP, yes "The Spaghettis" sounds very strange, and in Hebrew even more so: "Spaghettim."

Spacedlaw, yeah, it could be a "fleishig" restaurant instead of dairy. I personally like my spaghetti with meat sauce, and I'd love to visit the ghetto in Rome.

Another great composition on top.

Fabulous shot!

Pietro said...

Really interesting perspectives, Dina. Reading the title of the post, I thought the spaghettis were real and tasty ;-)
