One way of learning a bit about different cultures is by exploring their food. Ice cream may not be a food that comes to mind when you think of the Middle East but Rukab’s Ice Cream in Ramallah has been around since 1941. It is a much loved locally owned business. It’s also right down the street from where I used to live in Ramallah. It was one of my favorite places to meet with friends and people watch!
Here’s a fun video to watch about the history of Rukab’s Ice Cream.
And another article which mentions Israelis sneaking into Ramallah just to get the ice cream!
