Port Said in Hebrew פורט סעיד
“Port Said” is a quite casual 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 designed with long tables outside that allows people to gather together and listen to old records playing. The “klunkish” 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 Eyal Shani which is famous Israeli chef that made his career not from food but from talking about food, or maybe more accurately about over glorifying food so even the most simple ingredient would seem like it’s divine food . 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.
Port Said is located the the old synagogue complex on Allenby Street, where there many more alternatives for bars and restaurants close by, it’s quite common that you come and it’s totally full and you can add you name to a long waiting list. so if you wanna dance and drink you can go 20 meters to the right to the Otsar (האוצר). or if you’re hungry 25 meters to Santa Katarina סנטה קתרינה, If you insist of Eyal Shani menu you can go to Teder and get Pizza or a slimier menu like port’s in Salon Romano.
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 (roasted eggplants, tomatoes and boiled eggs), Masabaha, bread bread, blue lips potato with cream fresh, a bag of roasted reddish.
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?
