Hadar Haochel Restaurant Review

: “Hadar Ha’ochel” is a term used to refer to the communal dining hall in a traditional kibbutz. In the spirit of its name and in a modern version of that setting, this restaurant exudes a feeling of camaraderie, a place for the entire family. Both classy and comfortable, the tables come with crayons and paper tablecloths, so as children frolic, parents can savor their meal. The menu is a representation of multicultural Israel; some of the classic dishes are unaltered, while others are adapted via chef Omer Miller's imagination. Opt for the silky creamed eggplant, complemented with date honey and pine nuts to start. Roasted chicken with spiced honey, pistachios and charred potato should not be missed. Libations include a modest selection of Israeli boutique wines and interesting cocktails. The "Habayit" cocktail made with arak, red grapefruit, sage and lemon is a nod to the Israeli spirit of choice. For dessert, chocolate fans should sample the “Chocolate Nemesis,” a chocolate square served with a dollop of chocolate ice cream.
