Shock & Shawarma: Jerusalem Tourist Charged $2,800 for Food Plate

A tourist in Jerusalem’s Old City was recently charged $2,800 for a plate of shawarma, a Middle Eastern dish consisting of thinly sliced meat that generally costs less than $25. After Israeli media exposed the incident, Laura Ziff was refunded, according to her social media. The owners of the restaurant insisted the transaction was a mistake, but a former worker claimed it was part of an ongoing scheme to swindle unsuspecting tourists.
