Eyal Shani is one of the most famous chefs in Israel. His place “Port Said”, bar- restaurant on Har Sinai st’ (next to the big synagogue on Allenby st) is the perfect place to have a drink and enjoy quality food.
“Port Said” is attractive; the long tables outside allows people to gather together and listen to old records playing. The best local DJs (Yoni Sharoni, Shay Landa) and names from all around the world are coming to play in the “Port Said”, pure funk, rhythm and blues. Once in a while there’s a records bazaar for those of you who have passion for vintage.
The main thing about the menu is the Casual Middle Eastern touch of Shani’s. This place is so casual that you can’t reserve a table, so keep that in mind. The “Port Said” is heaven for vegetarians, most dishes are but you carnivores will love the Minot steak (our favorite dish). Dishes are not expensive, simple and genius at the same time. Alcohol however is not very cheap, but this is good balance if you ask us. The “Port Said” is so fresh and cool, you should write it down in your checklist.
The menu is printed daily so this is just an example of what you can eat at the port:
Roast beef Carpaccio, minute steak, chicken liver, ratatouille, Masabaha, bread bread, Potato blue lips..
Port said is a bar restaurant with a very casual middle eastern touch, so casual that you can’t reserve a table, Did we already mention not to over dress?
