Through eyeglasses of wonder: Te’enim Restaurant, Jerusalem – Review – ✸✸✸✸✸ 5 Stars

When you walk a city street at night,

do you feel the starlight discreetly grasp

your fingers

and lead you deeper into

wonder, rest, and joy?

Would you like to visit a restaurant where the starlight and city lights illuminate the limestone outer wall of an ancient city?

Float your blissed-out heart to Te’enim.

It’s one of my favorite restaurants in Jerusalem. And having lived in Israel and Palestine for three years, I know many of the restaurants. This one is particularly captivating. It is a vegetarian restaurant; and it’s invigoratingly creative, tranquil, and lovely. The service is gentle and warm; and the dishes are incredibly tasty.

Do note that they are not open on Saturdays, as is common with many restaurants in Jerusalem. Moreover, the space is small so, reservations are a smart choice.
