JOSEPH BURGER BAR IN JERUSALEM

Located at 123 Agrippas St, this restaurant is located in a brick wall setting complete with drop down huge screen, and a “black board” style menu on the exposed brick wall. Tables are small and relatively close together. We were there for lunch on a weekday, and we found that music was too loud, but […]

CATERED DINNER AT THE INBAL HOTEL, JERUSALEM

It is important to remember that the menu at a catered affair is based on what the sponsors are willing to spend. As a result, we review the food itself. Let’s start at the end. How was the dinner? Meh. The evening began with a cocktail hour. There was a wine and beverage bar. At […]

JERUSALEM STEAK HOUSE ON AVE. J IN BROOKLYN (MIDWOOD)

We were in the States for a brief visit, and we heard about this lovely restaurant. We decided to try it, and we are glad we did. The food is delicious, and the portions are quite large. Two of us went to dinner. We had the multi Israeli salads plate for a starter. One of […]

Hashamen

This small chain makes without a doubt the best schwarma in Israel. The stores are quite small, but the taste is huge. Most of the seating is outside, but there is a counter at which you can sit inside. They offer turkey, beef, and lamb. We prefer all three together. The laffa is most generous, […]

THE NEW POMPIDOU ON EMEK REFAIM

Pompidou moved from its former, cramped quarters into a much, much larger space. Located at 27 Emek Refaim, in the German Colony (Jerusalem), they are in the space where Lucianna (and before them Norman’s Burgers) used to be. The set up is essentially the same with few changes. Pompidou is a dairy restaurant. We went […]

MUFFIN BOUTIQUE

Located on the upper Ben Yehuda pedestrian mall, this place rapidly earned a name for itself. We admit, the muffins are extraordinary. They come in many different flavors. They are decently sized. They are delish! What we do not get is the fact that all over FaceBook on the local Jerusalem pages, when people ask […]

PEPITO ‘S (IN SHUK MACHANEH YEHUDA- JERUSALEM)

This is a tiny restaurant located in the shuk on HaEgoz street. They have two tables, and chairs at a counter inside. If you have to wait for a place to sit, by all means wait! This is a Five Fork Kosher Nexus winner. They serve what they call Latin Street food. We, frankly, would […]
