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 […]

KEDMAH RESTAURANT IN THE MAMILLA MALL

Let’s start with the good- we had an absolutely fantastic waitress. Without hovering, she was on the spot and very happy to serve. Her suggestions were well taken, too. Now the bad: We had the worst steak we have ever had there. We asked for entrecote. We do not know what cut of meat we […]

BABA RESTAURANT

Located on Emek Refaim (restaurant row), Baba bills itself as an authentic Israeli restaurant. We are not sure just what that means. Does a multitude of hummus dishes make it authentically Israeli? We found the food to be not very good. The felafel balls were pretty much the worst we have ever had anywhere in […]

BREAKFAST AT GREG’S IN THE MAMILLA MALL

Three of us went to Greg’s for breakfast. The food was amazing. The bread tray was filled with the most delicious, crispy loaf of bread as well as slices of whole wheat bread. The coffee was excellent and the barista was clearly a talented artist! One of us had the HUGE breakfast salad. It looked […]

ANGELICA- CHEF RESTAURANT

This was our last time to eat in Angelica in its present location. They are moving soon to a new and much larger location. Frankly, we love eating at Angelica. It is a very upscale dining experience at a very reasonable price. Three of us had appetizers, dinners, four cups of wine and two desserts. […]

SUSHI BAR RECHAVIA

There is one branch of this restaurant that is actually in Rechavia. We ordered food to be delivered. It came fairly quickly and quite hot. Located at 31 Aza, the restaurant has Rabbanut supervision. Frankly, the food is delish! We ordered the following: TORI KATSU Panko coated chicken breasts on rice with Japanese coconut curry […]

DINNER AT THE DAN PANORAMA JERUSALEM

Although we have eaten night meals on Shabbat at the Dan P, we have never had a dinner in the dining room during the week. Last night we decided to join the several hundred Christian tourists staying at the hotel in the dining room. Well, it was an amazing meal. The buffet featured: a fish […]

BREAKFAST AT THE DAN PANORAMA JERUSALEM

Since August, that new chef has done a most remarkable job of designing a breakfast that is amazing to see and even more amazing to eat: The dining room is a vast array of brilliant colored foods: salads, cheeses, sliced fruits, […]

One of the joys of flying Business Class on El Al is that you get some amazing meals during your flight. Over the many flights we have taken, one thing we know we can count on is mystery meat in the meat dish offered for dinner. The chicken looks and tastes like chicken. The fish […]
