Try the Greasy Spoon in Straight Street, Damascus. I believe it's one of the oldest streets in the world.

You know why it's called 'Straight Street', don't you? Because it winds around and around...like a street in Pittsburgh.

Ancient Mesopotamia was known for its British-style humour...smiley - run

Ah, but they probably did not serve chip buddies or baked beans on toast in Mesopotamia so I am not sure what would appeal to the English.smiley - winkeye

Freeing Will is probably a good idea, but why would he be looking for a greasy spoon in an ancient kingdom that fell millennia ago?

Since then, I think everybody's just been looking for a good shashlik place. smiley - run

I don't know what they ate in Ancient Mesopotamia. The closest I can come is what they ate along the beach in Herculaneum just before the Vesuvius eruption: green salads, ground beef topped with spicy hot sauce [we'd call them chili burgers today], and flat round bread topped with cheese [throw in tomato sauce, and they would have been pizzas].

Modern Middle Eastern food appeals to me a lot: tagines, felafel, hummus, tabouli, yogurt, etc. It doesn't surprise me that there are residents of that region who enjoy long, healthy lives.
