And now for something completely different. A destination: adventure tour + restaurant right in the middle of the Judean desert.
Just a 20 minute drive north east of Jerusalem, on the road to the Dead Sea, you’ll find Hacnaanite Meat Bar at the Kfar Adumim crossroads, just next to the Sonol Gas Station.
Visit Hacnaanit restaurant for a lovely meal in the beautiful setting. Or make a day of it and enjoy one of the Hacnaanit guided jeep or buggy tours. See below. The many activities are described on their website cnaanantours.co.il
Then end your day with dinner at the restaurant. This is a great experience for the whole family, for a group of friends or for yourself.
About The Hacanaanit Restaurant Menu
Hacnaanit is a good meat restaurant offering high quality, thoughtfully prepared dishes. Non meat eaters and vegetarians will find a good selection of vegetable dishes. Hacnaanit encourages family visits, and offers a special childrens menu.
Getting to it…
For starters there is a delicious sirloin carpaccio with balsamic vinegar, accompanied by a fruit salsa. But as you can imagine, the most popular starter is the succulent split chicken wings, sautéed with garlic, ginger and chilli sauce.
If you’re a serious lover of beef, we suggest a main course of Entrecote Angus steak which is accompanied by Chimichurri and grill scorched tomatoes. Hacnaanit also offer a homemade Angus beefburger served on a bun with fresh vegetables, fries and Hacnaanite’s popular special sauce, always a hit. Another unique dish is the smoked Veal Asado, wrapped in a date sauce. Beautifully tender, it is served with vegetables roasted in the taboun stone oven.
Hacnaanit makes especially good use of its taboun stone oven. Breads, vegetables, and even fish are cooked in the taboun. Vegetarians will enjoy the roasted vegetables skillet – a variety of seasonal vegetables roasted in the taboun oven with olive oil, white wine, thyme, sea salt and ground pepper. Ask your waiter about the fish of the day. It will be freshly cooked just for you in the stone oven, and you’ll find it soft and juicy, just as it should be.
This is not only a meat eater’s paradise built in an area particularly redolent of our history, but also a great bar with a wide selection of red and white wines, some imaginative cocktails (we like the Cnaanite, made with arak, mint and lemon, with a hint of fruit tonic) and more than a few beers – both draught and bottled. If you’re after something a little bit stronger, you can choose from vodka, anise, gin and whiskey.
Children can select between jumbo chicken hot dogs or chicken nuggets – both come with sliced vegetables, a glass of lemonade or orange juice and for dessert, marshmallows fresh from the fire. Wow, that will go down as a treat for sure!
Hacnaanit caters parties of up to 200 people. The fabulous surroundings, the excellent cuisine and the friendly service will ensure that your guests will enjoy a very special occasion whose memory will stay with them for a long time to come.
