Kosher Ethnic Restaurants Restaurants
If ever there was a place where one could enjoy authentic foods from different cultures it is Israel. Since the establishment of The State people have been coming to Israel from all corners of the world, and with them comes their culinary culture and expertise.
Only in Israel can you enjoy a range of cuisines, from Italian to Indian, and back again to the Middle East. Here are some of our favorire ethnic cuisines.
Jyoti - 72 Haatzmaut, Haifa 054-2088077
Jyoti offers authentic foods from Northern India. Most Israelis are accustomed to the mild flavors of Southern Indian food. If you enjoy ethnic foods, like to try foods from other cultures and like unusual spicing, you will have a grand time at Jyoti. The menu is vegetarian/dairy. A variety of dishes are presented in small bowls on a large tray. Indian style dining includes a good selection of rice, beans, legumes and vegetable dishes flavored with Indian spices. Sauces sometimes include yogurt. In India the locals scoop up the foods with bread. But if you need conventional silverware, I am sure that it can be provided.
