SHABBAT DINNER AT THE DAN PANORAMA HOTEL JERUSALEM

We admit to a bias when it comes to the Dan Panorama Hotel in Jerusalem. We also will tell you that that bias is well earned by the hotel. Recently, we had an amazing Friday night, sabbath meal at the hotel along with some friends. First of all, all of the food was fresh, attractively […]

KAMPAI STREET WOK (JERUSALEM)

We have been to Kampai Street Wok more times than we can remember. The last few times we went (Dec, Jan, Feb), we were somewhat disappointed in the food. The portions had shrunk, and the taste was not as good as it had been. We were there on May 1, 2017, once again. We had […]

ROZA (IN THE GERMAN COLONY) JERUSALEM

Featuring decor that is totally forgettable, this restaurant tries hard to be all things to all people. The amazing part of that is that they succeed. Sure, there are plenty of Mexican food items on the menu, but there are also Italian dishes and standard Jerusalem dishes. Two of us went for a late lunch […]

CAFFIT

Located at 36 Emek Refaim St. in Jerusalem, Caffit is a lovely, little cafe. It offers patio seating, outside (sidewalk) seating, and indoor seating. The indoor seating is comfortable and air conditioned. Kashruth is Rabbanut. The restaurant serves dairy foods. We were hesitant to go there, because we had read too many reviews that said […]

GINGER GRILL- RIVERDALE (BRONX) NY

Just after this eatery became kosher (Vaad Harabonim Riverdale), we ate there and wrote about our less than positive experience. Lo, these many years later, we gave it another try. We were very pleased. The tables are far enough apart so that you can have a private conversation. Waiters do not hover, but they are […]

HOLY SCHNITZEL

Located on Nome Ave at Richmond Ave on Staten Island and under the Vaad of Staten Island, this is yet another entry into the fast food schnitzel restaurants that popped up in so many places. The decor is bright and plastic- plastic tables, plastic chairs, plastic silverware, cups, etc. One of us had schwarma on […]

JACKO’S STREET (RESTAURANT)

By day, Machaneh Yehudah, the Jewish shuk in Jerusalem, is a crazy and crowded warren of alleys packed with all manner of stores. Chances are, just about anything you want, you can buy in the shuk. One caveat, however, stay away on a Friday morning when the shuk gives new meaning to the phrase “like […]

FIVE SHEKEL FAST FOOD IN JERUSALEM

HERZL RESTAURANT

Located on the first floor of the Mamila Mall, this Rabbanut Mehadrin restaurant is a true gem. The food is excellent, the service good, and the atmosphere fun. Three of us went. Two of us had the soup of the day, a most creamy and slightly spicy tomato soup. The portion was quite large and […]

IKEA (ISRAEL)

We suspect that the only Ikea store in the world with a mezuzah on every door way is the Ikea in Tel Aviv. We all know Ikea, home of inexpensive kitchen and housewares, and fairly inexpensive everything else. We bought bookcases there strong enough to hold our oversize Talmud and Shulchan Aruch as well as […]
