Holy Land Restaurant
  677 Rand St./Lakeshore Ave.  Located on a quiet side street, this simple spot can be difficult to find.  Only a few tables are available, but in good weather more are provided outside on the sidewalk.  It has been called a “holey” in the wall and is strictly counter service, but the fresh Middle Eastern fare is served up fast.  Among the many delicious choices are matzo soup, malawach fried Yemeni flat bread, a combo plate of delicious freshly-fried falafel with hummus and Israeli salad, a combo salad plate also with hummus, and a blended fresh-mint lemonade.  A portion of spicy green zhug sauce comes with most items, and sometimes a special such as spectacular fresh-corn fritters is an option.  The restaurant is glatt kosher and supervised by a rabbi.
