Restaurants at the First Station

The First Station is one of the hippest and most vibrant hangouts in Jerusalem — a center of leisure, culture, sports, tourism and events.

But maybe most importantly, Jerusalem’s renovated old train station is brimming with restaurants, cafes, drink bars and other culinary opportunities.

Lechem Basar has dedicated its culinary efforts to 2 staples of delicious dining — quality meat and fresh-baked bread — and delivering a top-notch, kosher mehadrin culinary experience at reasonable price.

On the menu, you’ll find a variety of steaks, hamburgers and a selection of different types of meat and chicken. And of course, you’ll want to pair them with a fresh-baked focaccia straight out of the stone oven and maybe a quinoa or chicken salad, stuffed vegetables, pastries stuffed with lamb, meat carpaccio or corvina fish ceviche.

In addition, their lunch deal is one of the best in town with an appetizer and a main course with your choice of sides starting at 79 NIS. You can also add a glass of wine for 18 NIS and a dessert for just 28 NIS.

Station 9

One of the more exciting additions to the First Station’s repertoire, Station 9 is where Jerusalemites go to get their Asian cuisine fix.

The creative (and kosher) Asian fusion eatery combines the traditional dishes and flavors of Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan and more with influences from the Israeli and Middle Eastern kitchen.

Their take on the the Taiwanese Bao — a fresh steamed bun with chipotle aioli, cilantro and chili with your choice of peking duck, fish, ground beef patty or spare ribs — is a must-taste. The cocktails aren’t half bad either!

The atmosphere is definitely family friendly, but on Thursday nights it’s trendy and youthful with a DJ and drink specials throughout the night.
