In North America, “Jewish” is synonymous with latkes, blintzes, bagels and gefilte fish—Eastern European Ashkenazi food. This September, come to Mamaleh’s for a taste of Jewish food of the Middle East. One whose staples are pickled turnips, fattoush salad and oven-roasted flatbread. Where sharp, tangy pickled mango finds its way onto every table. Where Arab and Jewish culture are deeply entwined after thousands of years of coexistence.

This is a pop-up brunch event, with a full Iraqi Jewish shabbat meal spread. The event is being organized by two cousins (Annabel Raby and Erica Rotman) of the Iraqi Jewish diaspora, who are working to preserve and retrace their heritage. All of their family left Iraq between 1950 and 1970. Much was left behind, but not the food. The entire menu is a recreation of the meals they grew up eating as children, and the stories they heard of food in the old country. It is a part of their journey to preserve the lesser known pieces of Jewish history, and reclaim pieces of the past. Plus, share some delicious recipes with the Boston community. We hope you’ll join us!

Brunch will be served as a special menu at Mamaleh’s Delicatessen (alongside their traditional weekend brunch menu). Click “Go” to make a reservation through the Mamaleh’s website or call 617-958-DELI. Please make a note that you’re interested in this special menu so we can anticipate how many people to expect.
