Until now, I have reviewed different restaurants in Tel Aviv according to their menus for both daytime and evening hours. In today’s post, I am highlighting Hachaim lunch menu and all it’s “all you can eat” brunch. In addition, I am introducing my new rating for each restaurant. I will be rating from a 1-5 scale in the categories of price, atmosphere, service, and quality.
Ha’achim ( the brothers), is located in the very busy and restaurant friendly Ibn Gabirol street. The restaurant is a true Tel Avivan dining experience. The design of the venue is similar to other central Tel Aviv eateries, with a small bar and small inside seating area with a view of the chefs preparing the delicious orders. They have a large outside seating section which usually hosts large groups. We recommend you to make a reservation during lunch and dinner hours. The staff is extremely friendly and is quick on their feet during peak hours.
Ha’Achim is a gourmet shipudiya (meat restaurant), a mix between a vintage steakhouse and a modern Tel Aviv restaurant. Their menu offers great appetizers – we recommend the freshly made hummus, tubule, roasted eggplant and lentils. They offer a starters deal where you get 5 starters for 59NIS. I recommend you order this if you are with a large group.
The entrée menu includes varied meat dishes such as their tasty steaks, baby back ribs, kebab, sausages and their delicious hamburgers. I recommend ordering their version of the Israeli hamburger. Trust me – don’t order the Salmon skewers. I have made that mistake before, as you will only get three small pieces of salmon with no side dishes for 39NIS.
Continuing onto their lunch specials, they offer well-priced specials Sundays through Thursday from 12PM-5PM. With the entrée special you will receive with your main course two starters and one side order of your choosing. The average price for this special is between 45NIS-55NIS. They also offer a skewer lunch special; you choose a skewer (baby chicken, chicken fillet, liver, and kebab), 2 starters and a side order for 49NIS. All their regular menu dishes are at a discounted price in the lunch hours as well.
During the past few months, they created a new concept to Tel Aviv, the “all you can eat brunch” during the weekend. On Fridays and Saturday between the hours of 9AM-12:45PM they offer “all you can eat” at a fixed price of 75NIS per person. The buffet brunch includes a large selection of various salads, omelets, vegetables, fruit platters, cheeses, breads, pastries, shakshuka and much more. Unfortunately, there is no bottomless morning cocktails option, but they do offer different cocktails, wine and hot cider for an additional charge.
