Great Meal at "La Boca"

During Chanukah, my husband and I decided to treat ourselves to a special meal out and had dinner at La Boca, a well-known South American style kosher meat restaurant in Jerusalem. Now to be perfectly honest, I must admit that we had a "gift card" that could be used at a number of restaurants, and we chose La Boca, even though we realized that the bill may be higher than the value of the card. But it certainly was worth it.

We called for a reservation for the same night and ended up having to sit "at the bar," but it was fine. And we ate two wonderful meals for what a couple of cheap shawarmas would have cost us.

While we were waiting for our orders, we were brought focaccias and dips, which my husband said was great. And then another treat, which I couldn't resist. I don't know if they add food for everyone or were we just lucky. Or did they feel sorry for us sitting at the bar. Or was it because we had ordered expensive main courses. It has happened to me before at "better" restaurants. And, yes, La Boca is considered one of Jerusalem's best.

Apparently, it's a favorite for groups and parties. There's space upstairs, besides the street level. Even when there was a group eating, the noise level was fine, and I have problems in noisy places.

And I had a steak. It came with potatoes, but they agreed to give me a salad instead.

Yes, we do recommend La Boca!
