they sat the one in mamilla is a different hashgocha i never checked , although in mamilla its impossible to get to know the staff , there are way too many, and they dont accept vip card,

i got my vip card from tipping well and from being very nice to the waiters.
but the truth is i never really needed to show my card at all, they always new me.
their was a bachor that i actually new well who had a set reserved table for him every night at 730 pm after night seder.
he was a real VIP status if u ask me.
 
what can i say i really enjoy liver.
the best liver in the world i think is the chopped liver sold in all the grocery stores , its by a company called international, it comes frozen. i used to order it by the case and ship it to toronto and israel.

 you need to try Rumanian from Chicago, you will need someone to walk in and buy it Only way to get it. Becareful once you eat theirs you probably wont want another which can be said for any of their Deli as well

I have the Mega Eater card still from yeshiva, which exempts you from giving tips.

There's another "card" which exempts you from tipping pretty much anywhere. Its called an Israeli Passport

WHERE IS THIS PLACE AND WHOS HASHGACHA DOES IT HAVE?

Yeah, damaxer, but I prefer mine, as the limo rentals stay without tax.

you used to get the vip by simply asking. it was a flimsy piece of paper and they gave it on the spot. then they changed it to a real card with your name printed on it which they sent by mail. for that, i had to badger them a few times. but it seems those days are coming to an end
and for the the record, i only got 10% off, never 12%, but in israel 10 is the standard tip

does the manager authorize this, or is it the server doing it on her own hoping to get tipped well? if the latter id prob stay away as i consider that borderline stealing
btw, how big a tip are you giving?

manager is definitly ok with this , i know manybochurim who the manager is on a first name basis with , he always makes sure to take care of good customers.
i tip usually 40-50 shekel on a meal that was max 130.......but i dont tip every night im there , that would be pointless, more like once a week .

thats the way you get service in israel only through tips,

i rember back in the day when the dan pearl was open , i used to be there with my family pesach succos and summer, wow did they take care of you for a few us dollars .

I've been to Hess. No comparison. Next time you are in chicago check it out. When i was in yeshiva, i used to bring this stuff back and use it as legal tender.

 Hess is tasteless = Bland for those that havent had the real thing Rumanian I guess its good

Drink no frills Cola and some will like it once they have had Coke (or Pepsi) they wont say that any longer, also alot of Europeans dont go for spice up things and Hess being bland is Right up their alley

In my days Matan Chofetz Chaim on Aggripas was the place to get something decent
