Right at the city center behind a bus stop, some steps from the municipality, this small russian place offers every day something different depending on what the owner has cooked. He does not speak anything besides Russian, so the nice serving girl will translate. Not sure if she speaks anything besides Russian and Hebrew though. They are very friendly, the food tastes like home made does, they offer great portion sizes and price. I got three salads, a vegetable and meat soup, purree with turkey steak and a drink for 45 Shekel. The food is fresh and you can taste the dedication put into the food. The place allows smoking as the owner does smoke himself. But if you don't, they will accomodate you as far away as any smoking person and if it is not a guest, put off their own cigarettes, too, for your convinience. The background music is R&B and jazz. Not the flashy stuff, but the type of music where you know that the person who selected it knew exactly what he was doing. In fact, it may occur that after preparing your meal, the owner will sit down at a table with some guest or friend who dropped in to discuss music. I could not ask him as I don't speak Russian, but my lucky guess is that he is an old school jazz aficionado. The decoration on the walls is at least an indication. The place is closed in the evenings, but he can open it if you want to book the whole place for up to 30 people. In that case you can also discuss special wishes for the meal and life music. There is a small space provided for that purpose and some musical equipment which otherwise serves as part of the decoration.
