restaurant,became known some years ago for its South American all-you-can-eat meat dinner. Vaqueiro was one of the first restaurants to adopt this model. Now, all these years later, Vaqueiro has something new to offer.
First, Stanley, the well known South African restaurateur has joined Vaqueiro.
Stanley was the guy behind some of the most successful restaurants in Jerusalem. Stanley's new concept for Vaqueiro adds several South African items to the ala carte menu. He has lowered the prices on the fixed price all-you-can-eat menu as well as the ala carte items.
On the new menu appetizers come in at under 25 shekels. Folks who like fresh, green and healthy salads will enjoy the Turkey breast salad
or the fresh vegetarian salad. Main courses are what you would expect in a gill house, but you will be pleased to see the new prices. A Jo'Burger with freshly ground meat on a fresh bun starts at NIS 38, Pargiot at NIS 49 and Entrecote Steak at NIS 85.
Stanley has added Bredie, the traditional South African lamb stew to the Vaqueiro menu. In addition he has added fish & chips served in paper, the way they used to have it in South Africa.
The famous Brazilians "Churascuria"
- an all you can eat girill meat menu that put Vaqueiro on the map is still served at the restaurant but at a new lower price. There is no written menu. 149 shekels gets you
10 different meat courses, including six salads, bread and roast
potatoes. The salads change daily with the whim of the chef, but
you can expect to find a good potato salad, a pasta salad, cabbage
salad, an eggplant dish, a beet and apple salad or an orange and
onion salad. The salads are also all you can eat, but caution,
don't fill up on salads and bread when the best is yet to come.
This is most definitely meat lovers paradise, but if perchance
there is a non-meat eater in your party, salmon is available.
The well-trained staff serve all the food family style and will
explain each dish. At any stage you may ask for seconds. Another
strategy is to try all ten dishes and then ask for seconds of
something you really like. Either way you won't leave hungry.
in on Haneviim St, one of the most beautiful and historic streets
in the city. The restaurant is in a lovingly restored heritage building.
The interior is divided into intimate areas and a big space ideal
for family gatherings. The lovely spacious outdoor porch is the place to sit to enjoy the delicious Jerusalem
air. This is also an ideal location for parties and get-togethers.
