During a visit to Jerusalem, Israel, I had the pleasure of dining at Lechem Basar, a renowned kosher meat restaurant located at The First Station, or "Tachana Rishona" in Hebrew. I’ve also been to their branch at the Tel Aviv Port, which was a different yet also satisfying experience.

 

Located in the heart of The First Station, Lechem Basar's Jerusalem branch offers a delightful blend of historical charm and modern dining. The First Station, a repurposed train station, provides a unique backdrop, combining the old-world architecture with contemporary touches.

Lechem Basar is celebrated for its kosher meat offerings. The menu is an ode to high-quality meats, prepared with a flair that showcases both traditional and innovative approaches. My meal started with an appetizer of freshly baked bread, a nod to the restaurant's name, which translates to "Meat and Bread."

 

The appetizers include sirloin carpaccio, roast beef, red tuna sashimi, and more. Main courses feature diverse meat options like chicken & lamb arayes, lamb siniyah, entrecote steak, and sirloin steak. There's also a kids' menu with simpler options. Desserts and a selection of cold and hot beverages are available. Additionally, they offer a business lunch menu with a variety of choices.
