Onken Family Dinners


Drop in LunchboxJerusalem, Israel,

This restaurant is one of the top  restaurants in Israel, and rightfully so. Everyone my local friends talked to gave this place rave reviews. All the ingredients are from the local Machne-Yehuda market in Jerusalem. The food here is top notch, and the atmosphere is very hometown kitchen feeling. People were singing with the music which gave it a unique element. The food is gourmet middle eastern with some great experimental flavors infused into the dishes. If you find yourself in Jerusalem, this little gem is a must visit.

Here are my fave dishes we had:
•Gazpacho of Summer Tomatoes with Calamari- I’d go on record of saying this is the best gazpacho I’ve ever had. It was so fresh and the flavors were punchy
•Fish Tartar with Watermelon Wasabi & Labane cheese- The combo of watermelon and white fish tartar is delightful.
•Carpaccio with Parmesan, Balsamic vinegar reduction- This beef carpaccio dish was exquisite. Had to order it again the second day we went.
•Sea Bream, Arisa Mash, Swiss chard and Feta Cheese- Yet another amazing dish.
•Black Risotto with Cauliflower & Parmig-iano & Muscles- So good with a little punch of spice.
•Polenta & Mushrooms- Tasty treat from day too.
