If it sounds like I'm focusing too much on the food, it's partly because this is a food blag, and partly because I really like food. So where did we leave off...
Tuesday night we ate at an overpriced Asian restaurant - Sheyan. The atmosphere was lovely. The service was great. Like all the restaurants we saw, they had an English menu. The food was not much better than you could get at a take-out place like Sini Speed for a lot less money. (See my review and take-out tips.) We paid 300 NIS ($88) for two wanton soups, two little cups of hot Saki, and two entrees. There was nothing wrong with the food, it just didn't have the subtle gourmet flavors I would expect from such a restaurant. I did see some very pretty things coming from the kitchen, though.
Katzefet, where we found a nice selection of ice cream, soft serve "bio" frozen yogurt, and an array of shake ingredients. For 25 NIS ($7.30) you get a large Belgian waffle with all the syrup and topping you want, plus whip cream and a scoop of ice cream, any flavor.
I ordered mine with caramel syrup, hot fudge, candied pecans, mixed berries (half frozen, but delicious), milk chocolate crumbles, and "deluxe" ice cream. I enjoyed it so much I could almost forget about the cigarette smoke wafting in from the tables outside! (If you know me and my sensitive nose, that says a lot.)
Below is a picture of a poster in our hotel. I couldn't figure out why I kept seeing watermelon with Boulgarit cheese on menus, but I guess we came during watermelon season. Any of you ever try watermelon with Boulgarit or feta cheese?
