Eilat and the Negev Restaurants




Lalo Review

This kosher, unpretentious lunch restaurant, one of the most established in Eilat, is a top-drawer example of Moroccan-Israeli ethnic cooking, by a mother-and-son team. Upon your arrival, five different salads (including cauliflower, tahini, eggplant, and hot peppers) are set quickly upon the table. The menu may confront you with foods you've never eaten before, but it rewards any adventuresome choices you make. Consider such delicacies as beef cooked with hummus (a house specialty); tongue; calves' brains served straight up with Moroccan spices; spicy beef meatballs; succulent couscous with vegetables, chickpeas, and tender chicken; and spicy-hot fish. No fancy pitas here—just plain bread. Dessert is specially prepared fruit, such as oranges or plums cooked until thick and soft, accompanied by fresh mint tea.
