Rating: A little old fashioned, but good
After our stay in Jerusalem we moved up north to the Galilee (named after the large and famous lake in the region). And more specifically we stayed in the small town of Rosh Pina.
Auberge Shulamit was recommended to us by our guide and was located in this building atop the hill.
For obvious reasons the position led to an excellent view.
And the glassy restaurant space takes advantage of that.
We ordered this local sparkling wine.
Watercress salad. with apple,red cabbage and pomegranate vinaigrette.
Grilled portobello mushroom. Mushrooms, peppers, mustard sauce, almonds.
Shrimps in butter. garlic and with wine /cream and roquefort. I actually loved this dish.
A bit of mango sorbet as an intermezzo.
Grilled lamb ribs. Mashed potatoes.
Salmon fillet in salvia butter,thyme and white wine sauce.
Pannacotta with fruit (and those Middle Eastern pastry noodles).
Chocolate sorbet. A bit icy.Overall, Auberge Shulamit was a good place. The view was nice and the service very friendly. Food was solid, if a bit old fashioned. After mostly kosher meals — or at least ones without shrimp on the menu — it was nice to get some shellfish back in my diet :-).
