Rating: Great view, sloppy service
For our second night in Rosh Pina we went up the street again to Pina Barosh and its Shiri Bistro.
They have a lovely (if slightly dated) outside patio with great views.
Said great view.
Geoni Salad. With sprouts, carrots, beets, cucumbers, walnuts and goat cheese.
Seared Cauliflower. With tahini sauce, chimichurri and radishes. As I’ve already noted, Israeli’s LOVE tahini. This was quite good though.
Foie Gras Terrine. With onion and pears comfiture. Tasty. Too bad it’s been banned again in LA!
Chicken breast with green beans.
Sea Bream fish. Whole baked and served with bonfire vegetables.
Seafood Risotto. With shrimps, baby shrimps and calamari with parmesan cheese. A bit heavy. Not a perfect Italian risotto, but not awful either.
Lamb T-Bone. With antipasti bonfire vegetable.
Shiri Bistro had a great view, but the food was a touch sloppy and the service very slow and confused. They were sweet, but there was basically one waitress for the entire large space and she was overwhelmed — and maybe a bit young and untrained.
