Yummy Late Lunch at HaGov!
On Wednesday, after studying in Matan, I met a friend for lunch. We wanted to eat at HaGov, the kosher sports bar & grill, since it's now open for the lunch crowd from 2pm every day, Sunday-Thursday. Since we had time before its opening, we went to the "Designer Outlet" in Talpiyot first. I got some great bargains there. I'm glad that I'm now a size that makes it possible to easily find clothes that fit.
Then we drove downtown to HaGov. We took a table overlooking Yoel Solomon Street and ordered. I had the Chicken Salad. They gave it to me, according to my request, just with salad and not with the chips and fried onions. I make that sort of request in all sorts of restaurants in Israel and abroad. I don't eat the carbohydrates, and I do like a lot of salad. It came with slices of toast and a few spreads, as you can see. I didn't touch the toast, but I added the spreads to my salad. I also had my first chametz after Passover, beer. Everything was delicious!
My friend had vegetable soup and edamame, green soy beans. She also enjoyed her meal.
It's a good thing that HaGov has expanded its hours. Many people I know had wanted to eat there but don't usually go out at night.
