eLuna visits Rosetta Restaurant
On a sunny winter day my companion and I stopped at Rosetta for lunch. We took seats against the outside wall of windows that allowed the sun to warm up the comfortable seating area. The space was bright and happy, giving us a good feeling before we started.
My companion was pleased that he could order Eggs Benedict from the breakfast menu, even though it was lunch time. I chose the fish&chips lunch special, which included a small starter salad for an additional 15 shekels. We started with the "katom" soup, which is orange soup,,a velvety blend of pumpkin, carrots and sweet potato. The Eggs Benedict were two pieces of challa (or brioche) with a slice of salmon on each piece, topped with spinach, hollandaise sauce and a poached egg on each piece. My companion was quite happy with this aesthetic and tasty dish.
Fish & chips is always my favorite, and this dish did not disappoint. The fish pieces were nice and crispy, served with a large portion of chips, tarter sauce and ketchup. This was way more than one person could eat, so we shared the dish and left a fair amount of chips behind.
A good nutritious lunch for both of us, came to 120 shekels.
