After an exciting morning of exploring, it was finally lunchtime. A ten-minute drive from the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes brought us to Saint Peter’s Restaurant.
The establishment is named for a special breed of tilapia that inhabits the Sea of Galilee. After a St. Peter’s fish lays eggs, she gathers them in her mouth. The eggs remain there until they hatch. The fish commonly gathers other materials from the bottom of the lake in its mouth. Fishermen may find bottle caps, stones, or coins in these fish’s mouths.
