Wineberg – Typical Israeli Tapas

14 Nov

We love Tapas! We have just got back from a dreamy week of beer and tapas in Spain. When Shahar’s father invited us to join him to a dinner in Wineberg we knew you couldn’t go wrong with the combination of Shaul’s recommendation, good atmosphere of Ben Yahuda’s st., the nice weather and the Tapas.

We would like to stop for a moment in order to give you some background information about the Israeli tapas places. The problem (some will say facing realty) with the Tapas bars in Israel is that they tend to compromise on the Tapa values for the crowed and the money. It is not a traditional Tapa. The Israeli tapa is usually larger than its original sister from Spain, and it’s usually priced as a Spanish “1/2 racion” (half a course).

Now we can get back to business… Wineberg itself is a small bar with a sitting place outside. Good atmosphere (though quieter than the traditional Tapas bar), lovely service. The courses were fine; we especially recommend the crab burgers and the tuna fish. Try the cold cut sausages plate, if they have more than one available in your visit.

Food: Cava bar / Israeli tapas bar
Price: Medium
Service: Nice
Getting there: by car (parking across the street), by bus of by food, depends on your location.

The check please (3 people):
Browned cauliflower – 20 NIS
Local eggplant, changed every day – 20 NIS
Scorched red Tunna – 46 NIS
Roast beef sandwich – 39 NIS
Crab burgers – 42 NIS
Cold cut Sausages plates – 46 NIS
3 Cava glasses – 75 NIS
Apple strudel pie – 35 NIS
Bungee Berries with Malabby and fig – 34 NIS

All in all: 357 NIS; nice place for a casual night.
