We recently went to Hachtzer, a meat restaurant in Jerusalem, for the second time. Contrary to the usual experience, our second visit was as satisfying as the first visit. The restaurant is simple in decor - warm and comfortable. The food has mediterranean and middle eastern influences but cannot be pegged down to a particular style. Somehow, the chef combines interesting spices and flavors to make each dish truly delicious and special. Both times we opted for the tasting menu which I highly recommend. The waiter will ask if there are any particular dislikes (such as intestines or other parts of an animal) and subject to that limit, the dishes served are meant to give the diner a true sense of the restaurant. Both times I left completely stuffed and thoroughly satisfied. It is not an inexpensive meal but one you will dream about for days!
