This is an amazing brand new spot in the foodies’ Rubinstein street. If you want to enjoy great street-food and to feel the bonheur de vivre or the joy of life – come in! Locals already love it. In our grey city (yep, there is a classy joke that locals are able to differentiate between 50 shades of grey color) people love everything that reminds us that summer exists.
Bekitzer is about food and mood.
The menu is rather compact, but very intriguing. For those who are like me not able to understand what ‘meze’, ‘labane’ and ‘krouvit’ are, there is a dictionary explaining everything. Or you can trust the Force and order something blindly. I tried ‘sabih’ (pita with vegetable filling) following the barman’s advice and it was great. All my friends know that I am not capable to leave the foodie spot without coffee and dessert :). I picked the ‘home made coffee’ with spices and mystery dessert ‘mlabi’ that was recommended as ‘Israeli panna cotta’ with rose water. Well, this is very authentic and original.
The spot is crowded, so it is not suitable for a ceremonious date. But if you would like to escape from the grey color for a couple of hours, it is probably the best place in the city to do this.
Enjoy your falafel, my friend!
P.S. Wine lovers would be happy to try some Israeli wine which is almost not available in St.Pete.
