I admit I'm a local! That means I'm broke, and I know where to eat and drink. I ate, and drank with the owner/chef Alon, 28 years ago! He looks great at around 50, running the kitchen(open views of food prep) Now remember folks, I'm a value for money, kind of guy. That means I always order the balsamic steak,with... More

This really is a hidden gem and we ate here twice during our 7 night stay in Jerusalem. It is a little hard to find in a lane behind and parallel to Ma'Alot Nakhalat Shiv'a St. The Pad Thai is cooked to the spiciness of your taste and is a very generous portion. The mussels in raki were awesome! Open... More

Shanty is one of our favorites. it has been there from our beginning and lasted throughout our lives. It has updated itself, but kept the main dishes there. it is a big place with the feeling of a small cozy family home. שאנטי תמיד היתה בתמונה של חיינו. מאד אוהבים את המקום, וממליצים בחום. מקום ביתי, מחבק. אוכל מצוין. מקום...

Can't miss the muscles special and the spicy wings. Well known establishment that goes way back. The chef is the owner himself and responsible for making all the delicious dishes.

Louie, our waiter, was the greatest! He led us to the homemade gnocchi, awesome ceviche, wonderful mussels in a special creamy tomato sauce, and fresh fish. Desert was an Israeli blintz with chocolate and bananas topped with vanilla ice cream. A place a little hard to find, but not to be missed. Look for the square at about 33 Jaffa... More
