MEDITERRANEAN FOOD

T CHINESE FOOD

JERUSALEM GARDEN
Cheap (almost noth-
ing on the menu runs
over $10), convenient
(five minutes' walk-
ing distance from State Street)
and delicious - Jerusalem
Garden is any student's dream
dining destination. Jerusalem
Garden serves up sizeable por-
tions of tasty fare for vegetar-
ian and carnivorous patrons
alike. Some of its specialties
include shawarma, falafel with

hummus, stuffed grape leaves,
lentil soup and chicken fattoush
salad - a personal favorite.
Though some of the traditional
Middle Eastern food might
sometimes lack spice, Jerusa-
lem Garden puts its own unique
spin on many of the dishes and
everything is consistently fresh
and made to order. Takeout is
your best option given the lim-
ited space in the dining room
and grillside counter. Service is

extremely quick, and the staff
is friendly and helpful. When
the snow and clouds finally
dissipate over Ann Arbor, the
patio opens for service, further
adding to the relaxed atmo-
sphere of the restaurant. So the
next time you're craving some-
thing other than cheap pizza or
greasy burgers, try Jerusalem
Garden - you won't leave dis-
appointed or hungry.

CHINA GATE
A nd (Jacob said),
'How awesome is
this place!? This
is none other than
the house of God, and this is
the gate of heaven!' " (Gen-
esis 28:16-17 RSV) This may
appear to be a passage from
the Bible, but in fact, it's a
direct quote from a friend of
mine after his first meal at
China Gate. OK, maybe it is a
passage from the Bible. But I

promise you, when you wal
through that door you reall
do get a little taste of heaver
From the excellent egg dro
soup to the kick-ass Kung-Pa
chicken, China Gate doesj
all. And most of the succes
can be attributed to the cul
nary brilliance of God him
self: Chef Jan. With more tha
40 years of experience and a
array of accolades to his nam
Chef Jan has helped Chin

.k Gate become Ann Arbor's
ly favorite hotspot for Chinese
n. cuisine. Whether you're in the
p mood for Szechuan, Hunan
o or Peking food, China Gate
it has something to offer. So
s the next time you're chowing
i- down on some of Chef Jan's
s- magical creations, make sure
n to give yourself a quick pinch.
n You may have entered the
e, afterlife.

CLUB
5TH QUARTER
Top 40 fare, moderately
priced drinks and a
giant mechanical bull.
What's not to love
about 5th Quarter? If you're
over 21 and prefer to spend
your boozy nights without hav-
ing your ears blasted off by the
Black Eyed Peas, you can prob-

ably name several things. But
that's part of the charm of 5th
Quarter. With an 18+ age limit,
the venue entices rambunc-
tious underclassmen who share
a taste for sweaty dance floors
and illicitly consuming alcohol
in club bathrooms. Although
most Michigan students

migrate to the even sleazier
Rick's once they hit the exalt-
ed 21st birthday, 5th Quarter
offers a fitting introduction to
the joys of dirty dancing, casual
hookups and Blue Balls - the
rum-and-blue-curacao mixed
drink, that is.
