Fun & Unique Jerusalem Restaurants

November 29th 2016

Part of the fun of going on vacation is eating out, but having falafel, pizza, or the same burgers every night can get old fast. Lucky for you, Jerusalem is packed with loads of interesting eateries that’ll keep you entertained even as you dine. So check out these Jerusalem restaurants that are out of the box and serve food that’s out of this world!

Tmol Shilshom

Are you a foodie? Are you a bookworm? Then head straight for Tmol Shilshom, the coolest place to combine these two passions in one. Tmol Shilshom (translated as “Those were the days”) serves up some Mediterranean style dishes in a beautiful Jerusalem stone room with a Tzfat-inspired design.

The most interesting part of Tmol Shilshom, though, are the walls covered with bookshelves…with books that you can read while you eat. It’s like a Steimatzky with food! So order your mains, grab a thrilling title from the shelf, and cozy down to an evening of pure bliss.
