About Black Restaurant

November 09

If you are anything like me then you have passed by Black Restaurant somewhere in the country hoping to find a teudat kashrut. Well search no further than Jerusalem, where the branch located on Shlomzion Hamalka is kosher, and serving up a tremendous array of unique burgers and meat dishes.
Founded by Israeli Chef Tzachi Buchester, the Jerusalem branch is run by Dror Gabbay who had wanted to make his restaurant kosher for a long time. Once he and his partner began the process, Tzachi became interested in the project, and helped them develop a new kosher menu that would not stray from the image and spirit of the establishment.

The entrance to the restaurant is on Shlomzion Hamalka but the restaurant itself is on the second floor. As we entered we were happy to see the teudah proudly displayed in the window. The interior of Black Restaurant is designed with a trendy flair that harkens favorably to a Rock club. The seats are red and black and the bar glows with soft light. Behind the bar the alcohols are perched on glass stands that look like blocks of ice. There is a big screen TV that Dror is only too happy to show all the big games on, and the music is soft British and American Rock. There are two sections of seats and the outer area has been fitted with a roof.

The Kosher Black Restaurant Menu

At the suggestion of our waitress who was both attentive and knowledgeable, we started with the Grilled Eggplant, and the Beef Chili. Both appetizers came with bread that had the secret house blend of spices on it. The eggplant was served with sweet chili sauce and orange tehina, both of these flavors combined to create a sweet and spicy dish that matched the cool texture of the eggplant perfectly. The chili was also a hit. Not for the faint of heart the chili was super spicy and had a ton of flavor. It almost seemed like the heat of the dish was on a time release because it took a moment to kick in.
For the main course my companion and I were almost at a loss. There are so many wonderful sounding burgers to choose from like the Norma Jean which is made from entrecote, and the Greenbuger with spinach and nuts. In the end my companion chose the Three tenors, which is three smaller burgers, one all beef, one Greenbuger (see above), and a chicken burger served with salad.

I had the Black Diamond, a house specialty made of ground fillet and stuffed with sweet potatoes. I would be remiss if I did not mention that the portions are very large. My companion’s trio of burgers were great. The chicken burger was light and moist, and the green burger had a nice texture. The standout however was the all beef burger which was juicy and flavorful. My Black Diamond burger was also quite good and a nice twist on a classic.


For dessert we shared the Bermuda, a crunchy chocolate wafer with Nougat and chocolate. It was bit on the heavy side after such a heavy meal but it was very delicious. Dror also mentioned that they are developing a special cocktail menu with unique drinks not found at any of the other Black Bar 'N' Burger branches.

Dinner for two was NIS 220 and Black Bar ‘N’ Burger has a dinner special for two for NIS 159.


From Our Readers:
Submitted by: Daniel J. Levy. Date: March 5, 2014. Description: A short walk from Mamilla, I much prefer this place to Burgers Bar. Often with special deals at very reasonable prices, it's basically impossible to leave hungry. Efficient English-speaking staff, and of course great meaty food. Highly recommended.
