Full 8 Shekel Menu at This New Kosher ‘Chef’ Sandwich Chain in Israel: EIGHT

Last updated: February 16, 2017

The gourmet sandwich chain led by the only Israeli Michelin star chef, Moshik Roth (מושיק רוט), has finally come to Yerushalayim. EIGHT or “8 רשת”, the chain serves everything on the menu for merely 8 shekels each.

The reason everything cost 8 shekels is that according to the owner, every time someone goes to the bigger chains or a regular burger joint, the portions arehuge and expensive. By making everything on the menu 8 shekels, you can order a couple of things to enjoy.

This concept was first started by Cofix with their 5 shekel cafe menu, and continued with the 10 shekel sandwich chain Goldot.

Diners can fill their sandwich with corned beef, hamburger, duck, rib eye, or make a double decker sandwich. Menu items include asado, entrecote, duck, chicken, schnitzel, hamburgers, merguez sausage, and vegetable omelet, freshly prepared and served with rolls with add-ons including mushrooms, fried egg, and roasted peppers. Additional menu items include salads, coleslaw, french fries, sweet potato, and mashed onion rings.

    Waldorf Astoria – Jerusalem on their own saw that the NY orthodox crowd were not eating in their restaurants so they changed from Rabbanut Jerusalem Regular to Rabbanut Jerusalem MeHadrin. Since that time, they took notice that there were more business meetings and other events taking place in their hotel. In Tel Aviv – there is a bit of an uproar as more restaurants are opting for MeHadrin level kashrut & also closing on Shabbat so as to attract more clientele. I hope the corporation comes to realization that Israelis are becoming more Kashrut observant? Shabbat Shalom

      Although I totally see that, and myself eat only mehadrin meat, I fear that it will be impossible to keep this level of choice and quality at 8 shekels with mehadrin products.

      • Alan Ira Silver

        To produce Mehadrin products in and of themselves is the same process with the same ingredients. Shomer Shabbat people are utilized in all instances. Bet Yosef / Glatt excellent quality meat is being imported from Uruguay and Argentina at a very good price. The B’nai Torah are buying this meat directly, so it must be reasonably priced, this is without the involvement a distributor who then kicks up the price. So-called “kosher” meat is being imported from the US and I would keep my distance from it. If there’s a will, there’s a way.

          the problem its they charge you way tooo much for supervision, and they dont supervise a lot, i am a chef, worked in different restaruantas

          • Alan Ira Silver

            I’ve been working in Kosher supervision for 49 years around the world – short time (ha!). We eliminate all this extra cost for supervision by having one person per shift who is a Shomer Shabbat. They get paid by the kashrut organization, not to twiddle their thumbs but to work as a cashier, busboy, sandwich maker, stock person they are part of the team. It is done in the US and can be done in Israel too
