Medita restaurant - Mediterranean bistro in Jerusalem
I came back to Medita restaurant in Jerusalem, few years after my last visit.
It's the same warm elegant restaurant with very good service.
But what I mostly liked to discover is that the food is still delicious as I remembered.
We started dinner with lovely cocktails.
Then they brought to the table Focaccia taboon and dips, as they do in every dinner at the place.
For first dishes we had:
Taboon eggplant with tahini, colorful tomatoes, oregano.
Sweetbreads Focaccia with tomato, pickled lemon and Amba.
And the special of that day: Goose liver with tomato jam. very special indeed!
For main dish we also selected that day special, which was: Nebraska steak with bone marrow and fries. we had a very big juicy and tasty steak.
Even though there was no room left, we had a desert: Sea of Chocolate which was too sweet for me and non-dairy.
