While in Jerusalem, Israel, I had the pleasure of dining at Sima's Restaurant on Agripas Street, a renowned kosher steakhouse. Established in 1969, Sima's is located near the Machane Yehuda Market, making it a staple in the local culinary scene. The restaurant underwent a recent renovation, but it hasn't lost its authentic charm. It's a place where diverse crowds gather, from residents to tourists, and even occasional Knesset members.

Sima's offers a variety of traditional Middle Eastern meat dishes, true to its origins. The menu boasts a variety of dishes catering to meat lovers, including steak, chicken breast, kebab, goose liver, and their signature dish - the me'urav yerushalmi. This unique dish is a mix of chicken hearts, lungs, and other chicken parts, typically served with a side of French fries. For those who prefer vegetarian options, there are soups, hummus, and techina.

At Sima's, kubeh, a popular meat dumpling dish in the Middle East, can be found either fried or boiled in soup, providing a hearty and comforting food experience.

 

Accompanying the main dishes are various salads, vegetables, and spreads, including hummus and pita bread, which are fundamental elements of Middle Eastern cuisine.

 

The atmosphere at Sima's is unpretentious and down-to-earth, reflecting the spirit of Israeli workingman's food. The restaurant is also known for its generous portions and reasonable prices, with meals ranging from $20 to $35. It's open throughout the week, including late hours, accommodating diners with different schedules.
