Middle Eastern Flavours in the Lower Mainland

Ashraf Ahmad’s passionate food journey began when he was just 12 years old. His parents opened a restaurant in Lebanon where he was taught Lebanese cooking skills the authentic way. Immigrating to Canada in 2001, Ashraf brought with him the family recipes and opened an establishment similar to Jerusalem Grill in Montreal with a partner before deciding to head west. He soon discovered that the Lower Mainland restaurant scene was lacking traditional Middle Eastern fare.

“Whatever you order here is the exact same, if not better, than what you would get dining in the average restaurant in the Middle East,” says Ashraf proudly.

The combination of traditional food, the finest fresh ingredients and charismatic hospitality has made Jerusalem Grill a destination for many since 2011. “Those familiar with Middle Eastern cuisine come to us from a distance, and those who have been introduced to the cuisine here, they still come to us from a distance. Lots of families travel from different cities on the weekends to come and dine in the restaurant, so that shows we’re doing something special,” says Ashraf.

Quality Ingredients and Authentic Dishes

“We make food with love. My rule in cooking has always been that if I would not eat it, I will not serve it,” says Ashraf. He prepares everything from scratch with the finest locally sourced ingredients following time-tested, second-generation family recipes to delight his customers with authentic flavours in every dish.

Open for lunch and dinner, Jerusalem Grill serves up classics such as shaved lamb shawarma, grilled chicken sheesh tawook and grilled beef kufta. Falafel is available in a wrap or on a platter with homemade fries, fresh salads such as tabboli and fattouch, hummus and garlic dips, and pita bread.

“We’re probably one of the healthiest restaurants around because we don’t use any preservatives. Nothing comes out of a can or is frozen. The fries are hand cut; the salads are prepared fresh daily,” says Ashraf.

The Jerusalem Grill Comes to You

Ashraf started Jerusalem Grill on his own. However, as the business has grown, the joys of cooking and serving have become more of a family affair, with his parents – who taught him everything back in Lebanon – joining him once again in his food journey.

Initially operating as a dine-in and takeout establishment only, in 2013 Ashraf introduced delivery to satisfy his customers' cravings. “If you can’t come to us, then we will come to you,” says Ashraf. For your convenience, Jerusalem Grill delivers within Surrey, Langley and North Delta.
