Top ChoiceRestaurants in Sea of GalileeMagdalena
Subject of a glowing New York Times review in 2016, this 'chef's restaurant' features innovative 'Galilean Arab' cuisine that combines ingredients and recipes that chef Zuzu Hanna learned from his mother – in the Upper Galilee village of Rameh – with modern gourmet techniques such as sous vide. The menu, based on herbs and vegetables that grow in the Galilee and beef, lamb, chicken, fish and seafood, changes with the seasons. Save room for the award-winning halawet el jeben (semolina dough filled with sweet Arab cheese and sprinkled with honey and pistachios). Incongruously situated above the Dabbah supermarket, with the entry around back.
