Meat and Eat at the Tel Aviv Port – A Very Worthwhile Mehadrin Steakhouse

Lechem Basar at the Tel Aviv Port is a kosher mehadrin steakhouse located next to the sea. The restaurant is under the highly respected kosher supervision of Rabbi Machpud.

Kosher mehadrin restaurants are popping up all over the country, in light of the growing demand of the Torah observant public to eat in quality eateries with strict adherence to kashrut. For those looking for a quality meat meal in Tel Aviv, Lechem Basar is a great choice.


Being located near the sea, the port’s promenade winds right past Lechem Basar. You’ll see many families strolling together while taking in the sights and enjoying the ocean breeze.

Lechem Basar has a very large outdoor seating area which includes tables and sun umbrellas spaced out on a wooden deck. The restaurant also has a spacious indoor seating area. The design of the restaurant is not fancy per se, but it is definitely pleasant, attractive and clean.

Lechem Basar has quite a few kosher mehadrin branches, and new ones are being opened regularly. I have already written about Lechem Basar in Jerusalem and in Beit Shemesh. Those who have already visited one of the branches know that the menu is varied and the food is well done (don’t worry you can order medium, medium rare etc as well).

Based on our past experience, my wife and I knew that the dishes were generous so we decided to order one appetizer and one main dish and to split them between us. For the appetizer, we ordered roasted eggplant which is half an eggplant covered with an abundance of tehina, tomato salsa and spices served with braised bread. The eggplant was savory, and the serving style was aesthetic.

Other appetizers that can be ordered include stir-fried mushrooms, lamb zucchini (small zucchinis filled with lamb brago), salmon ceviche, salads and more.

For our main course, we ordered lamb siniya, which is prepared and brought to your table in a stainless steel pan. The lamb meat is cooked as a ragout, a stew with the lamb meat, vegetables and spices. The pan came very hot, wrapped in dough and served on a wooden tray. The dish was delicious and quite filling.

There are a variety of main dishes, including baked salmon fillet, grilled spring chicken, entrecote steak (prime rib) served on the bone, aged beef fillet, and whole sea bass served with sautéed vegetables, white wine and confit, just to name a few. In short, there are no lack of possibilities.


The service at Lechem Basar was very good. The waitresses were courteous, and all the dishes arrived on time. I happened to talk to the owner of the restaurant, and I found him to be very personable and friendly. Apparently the good natured spirit of the owner has trickled down to the staff.

Dave Bagels – Mehadrin Deli Meats in Downtown Jerusalem

Usually, 99% of the time, when people talk about restaurants that serve bagels, it’s obvious that you’re talking about a dairy restaurant, but not so at Dave Bagels in downtown Jerusalem (and no, it’s not a mistake, it’s Dave Bagels, not Dave’s. Maybe the owner thought that Dave’s in Hebrew would look a bit strange).
