Galilean flavor

Kosher Galilee Bistro - on Mount Canaan in Safed

The rich local sesame we use to make fine tahini, Galilean olive oil and wheat- smoked green wheat that characterizes the Galilee region โ€“ are only a small part of a large abundance of quality raw materials, which we have chosen carefully and lovingly. After all, the Galilean cuisine has its own unique flavors!

In Sumac you will enjoy a rich and varied menu that includes, among other things, a discharge salad and roasted roots on a bed of tahini, lamb chops with onions stuffed with roast beef sauce and a traditional Cylindrical dessert with a modern twistโ€“ semolina and tahini with malabi cream and pomegranate syrup. To complete the ideal culinary experience, on the drinking and alcohol menu, a selection of the highest quality wines that come to us directly from the boutique wineries in the Galilee.
