Side note: there was a story going around about some guys who asked the owner of Dex what the hashgacha was. His response was "if you care enough to actually ask that question, then this place is probably not for you."[/i]

I have gotten that response a Number of times in Israel.

Yes, Hadar-Geula is my favorite (and eats your money).

If you want catered (home-cooked), highly recommend Rochy Victor - 718-578-4181, 02-532-2773 or magicalm@netvision.net.il

Just back from Israel. Just to confirm what others have said. Rimon, always dependable good. Not always great, but very good. We went to the one in Mamilla. Entrecote was very good. Papagaio was very good. Most ordered that Brazilian all you can eat, and they do keep coming. Greens bagels melt in your mouth. Belinda has good breakfast/lunch. Keyara also very good. Bring a bank roll with you!

Downstairs by the Wolfson buildings in Rechavia - on Diskin. There's a shopping center down there.
