i would be surprised if they still  offered that given their menu

http://www.zion-hagadol.co.il/dashboard/custom-3
At he bottom of that menu if you look closely on the right hand side it says that you will always get pitot and dips and if you don't order and meat it will cost you 35 shekel so I guess the price went up in 10 shek
