I was wandering around the Jaffa port with friends, looking at different art exhibitions, when we stumbled across a cute restaurant called Kalimera. The menu looked nice, and the hostess explained that there are special fish and meat dishes that don’t appear on the menu, so we decided to take a chance. Well I must say I am happy I took the chance! I haven’t had such a lovely experience in a long time!
The food was exquisite and unique. We did as the waiter advised and shared a few dishes between us. I fell in love with the dish called “Kalimera” , squid a la plancha in special eggplant and “labane” (a mid-eastern low fat sour creamy cheese). The tempura shrimp were really good and the unique sauce made it worth coming back for. My friend that doesn’t eat seafood ordered a dish called “Karla” which is Chicken baked in yogurt tomato sauce. I tried the dish and couldn’t believe that I could like chicken so much. I will definitely order this dish next time. It is served in a really inviting manner, with tortillas and vegetables. Yummi!
The service was courteous and fast, the prices good, and the dishes came out at a very appropriate manner, so I didn’t find myself eating chicken and squid together. The desserts are also good. I asked about dishes that are appropriate for people with Celiac (sensitivity to gluten) because I wanted to bring my family, and my niece has celiac. Very quickly I received a list of different dishes that she can eat. I was very impressed about the restaurant’s sensitivity to this issue. So, yes! I will go back!
